Ingredients

  • 250g asparagus bunch, woody ends snapped off, stems thinly sliced, tips left whole
  • 250g sweet potato, grated
  • Small handful each of fresh oregano, parsley and mint roughly chopped, plus extra to serve
  • 1 large free-range egg, beaten
  • 200g feta, crumbled
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Method

  1. Blanch the asparagus tips in boiling salted water for 30 seconds, drain, then refresh under cold water. Put the grated sweet potato in a clean tea towel and squeeze out as much moisture as you can.
  2. Mix the sweet potato with the sliced asparagus and tips, herbs, egg, feta and flour. Season well, then chill for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil to a depth of 1cm in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Put large spoonfuls of the asparagus mixture into the hot oil, flattening a little with the back of a spoon. Fry in batches for 2 minutes on each side until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside on kitchen paper. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Serve warm with herbs scattered on top.
