Sweet Potato Falafels with Coleslaw and Hummus

Ingredients:

120g plain flour
1tsp ground cumin
1tsp ground coriander
2 crushed garlic cloves
1tbsp olive oil

A handful of fresh coriander leaves, chopped
Seasoning
Preheat the oven to 180C.

Roast the whole sweet potatoes until it’s cooked (about 45 minutes – 1 hour). Turn off the oven, leave the potatoes to cool and then peel.

Place the sweet potato in a bowl and crush to a puree. Gently add the cumin, garlic, ground and fresh coriander, lemon juice and flour. Season well. Leave the mixture in the fridge for an hour or so. Using a couple of soup spoons dipped in cold water, make the mixture into small patties and put them on an oiled baking tray. Bake in the oven for about 8 minutes on each side golden-brown. Serve with coleslaw, hummus & pita bread.
