Chickpea and Sweet Potato Patties

This is probably one of my favourite recipes that I have come up with since starting to eat a plant-based diet.

400g can chickpeas

320g sweet potato

1 leek, sliced

2 cloves garlic

1 tsp mixed herbs

1 tbsp soy sauce

few drops tobasco

150ml veg. stock

4tbsp wholegrain flour

50g wholegrain breadcrumbs

olive oil

Roughly chop the sweet potatoes and put into boiling water to cook for 20 minutes.

In a large frying pan heat 2 tbsp olive oil on low-medium heat. Add in the leek and the garlic. Let it cook for ten minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the mixed herbs, drained chickpeas and stock to the leek and garlic. Stir until thickened then add the soy sauce, flour, breadcrumbs and tobasco. You can also season at this point.

Drain the sweet potatoes and mash in a large bowl. Add the mixture from the frying pan and mash it all together

Allow to cool and then mould into 12 patties about 1cm thick.

Cook in a frying pan on medium heat, with just enough oil to grease the pan, for 4 minutes a side.

Serve! (I love them with ketchup)
