MEATLESS MONDAY: Sweet Potato & Lentil Breakfast Patties

After a week off blogging (sorry peeps! It's been crazy busy last week and I just couldn't find the time), I have a new recipe for you. This was a complete experiment that went so well. I had left over sweet potato mash and also some harissa lentils. You don't need to have leftovers though, you can make this from scratch (but might be a bit easier if you have some mash in the fridge ready to go!)


1 cup of sweet potato mash
1 cup of green lentils
1 cup chopped kale
4 tbsp Gluten free flour
1 tbsp harissa spice blend or paste
1 tsp turmeric powder
salt and pepper
oil for frying


  • Preheat the oven to around 150/175 degrees celcius 
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients together
  • Heat up some oil in a fry pan - maybe around a tablespoon to cook 3 patties
  • Take a small handful of mixture in your hands, roll into a ball and then press it flat
  • When the oil is ready, fry the patties in batches of 2 or 3
  • Cook on each side for around 3 mins or until golden brown. 
  • Once cooked, transfer to a baking dish/tray and place in the oven to keep warm and finish cooking through - keep adding cooked patties to the dish until they are all cooked.
  • Serve with a fried egg, a sprinkle of parsley or coriander and some chilli sauce
Thanks so much for reading, I hope you get to try it out!
