Sweet Potato,Ginger & Tofu Patties
These patties are so simple to make and with only a few ingredients.They are perfect as an accompaniment to any meal and are great for bento too!
Start by peeling one small sweet potato and chopping it into large chunks, steam the chunks until tender and then leave to cool.
Mash 1/2 a block of firm tofu and mix in a tablespoon of ginger juice. I get the juice by grating ginger very finely with a Japanese grater and squeezing out the juice. Be sure to use fresh ginger.
Add a little salt and pepper to your tofu and then add your sweet potato and mash this into the tofu try to leave some bigger chunks of tofu.
Then add 1/2 cup of panko breadcrumbs and mix in. Let this sit for a while so the panko breadcrumbs absorb moisture.
Scoop a few tablespoons of mixture into some plastic wrap and mould into patty shapes and remove from the wrap.
In a shallow bowl add toasted black and white sesame seeds and roll your patties into the seeds and make sure they are well coated.
Heat up some coconut butter in a skillet and shallow fry the patties until golden.
