This week I tried out a new recipe from Yotam Ottolenghi's gorgeous book Plenty - his super simple yet gorgeous sweet potato cakes.
These are really lovely and take hardly any effort, and actually very few ingredients! I don't know about you but when I flick through recipes from Ottolenghi I can get a little intimidated by the amazing pictures and (on first glance) fairly long ingredient lists, so I am beginning with something quite simple! Being mostly sweet potato, these cakes are almost entirely vegetable with just a few healthy & yummy additions :)
I must admit I feel like I post a lot of 'savoury cake' type recipes on this blog (such as my chickpea & falafel burgers, super easy veggie burgers or my breadless salmon cakes) but these little beauties are my favourites so far. I also whipped up a quick dip of my own making which I will explain below.
