Cailiflower and Sweet Potato Cakes

Cauliflower & Sweet Potato Cakes

So here it is, my very first recipe on BiaMaith.ie. I am not a chef but as a mum of three very young kids and a hungry husband, I often feel like I spend half my life wondering what to make for dinner. This week cauliflower & sweet potatoes were on offer in one of the supermarkets so I stocked up and decided I would experiment with other ingredients I had at home. This dish is what I came up with. I love trying out different spices and try to feed my family as healthily as possible, so these are what I came up with. We all really enjoyed them and they were so cheap to make. I’ll definitely give these a go again and I think they’d be really nice with a mint and yoghurt dip or a garlic mayo in a pitta bread with salad.

    Super duper way to get the kids to eat veggies they don’t normally touch. I say they are for the adults only and somehow this makes them want them even more 🙂
