Roast the sweet potato
Roast the sweet potato

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Cut the kumara (unpeeled) into 1cm chunks. Place the kumara, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Toss to coat, then roast until tender, 20-25 minutes. DTIP: Cut the kumara to the correct size so it cooks in the allocated time.

While the kumara is roasting, grate the courgette. Squeeze the excess moisture out of the courgette with your hands or a tea towel. Grate the carrot (unpeeled). Thinly slice the spring onion. Finely chop the parsley. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the pumpkin seeds and toast, stirring, until browned, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.


In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the courgette, carrot, spring onion, parsley and shredded Cheddar cheese and stir well to combine. Add the plain flour, the salt and a pinch of pepper. Mix well to combine. TIP: Lift out some of the mixture with a spoon, if it's too wet and doesn't hold its shape, add a little more flour!

Cook the fritters
Cook the fritters

Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat and add enough olive oil to coat the base. When the oil is hot, add 1/4 cup of the fritter mixture and flatten with a spatula. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Cook until golden, 3-4 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. TIP: If your pan is getting crowded, cook in batches for the best results. Don’t flip too early to ensure the fritters have time to set and add extra oil as needed.

Prep the salad
Prep the salad

Finely chop the tomato. Cut the lemon into wedges. In a medium bowl, combine the honey, olive oil (4 tsp for 2 people / 2 1/2 tbs for 4 people) and a small squeeze of lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the tomato, roasted kumara, mixed salad leaves and toasted pumpkin seeds to the bowl and toss to coat.
