Ingredients
  • 350g Sweet Potato, grated (replace with celeriac to reduce carbs)
  • 150g Leek, finely chopped
  • 3 Large Eggs, whisked
  • 2 TBSP Coconut Flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp grated lime zest
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Pinch pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. Into a mixing bowl place grated sweet potato, chopped leek, salt, lime zest, pepper and coconut flour and combine
  3. Add in whisked eggs and fully mix in
  4. Over high heat in a deep sided frying pan place 2 TBSP coconut oil and allow to melt
  5. Spoon about 1-1.5TBSP mixture in to the pan and spread to about 2 cm thick (If your mixture is too dry add another egg but 3 LARGE eggs should be plenty for this recipe!)
  6. Add in up to 4 patties and allow the underside to turn golden brown (about 2-3 mins) before flipping (carefully) and cooking the other side
  7. Once both sides are nicely browned, place the patties on a baking sheet and pop in the oven for 5 minutes to ensure they are cooked through
  8. Once cooked squeeze a generous amount of lime juice on to them and serve straight away or allow to cool and serve at a later time
