Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the kumara (unpeeled) into 1cm wedges. Spread the kumara over two oven trays lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and toss to coat. Roast until tender, 25-30 minutes.


While the kumara is roasting, finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Thinly slice the eschalot. Grate the apple. In a large frying pan, heat the butter over a medium-high heat. Add the eschalot and cook until softened, 2 minutes. Add the grated apple and brown sugar and cook until softened, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a medium bowl. Set aside to cool slightly.


Add the fine breadcrumbs, garlic, lemon pepper spice blend, pork mince, egg and the salt to the bowl with the apple mixture. Combine well. Using damp hands, form the mixture into 2cm thick rissoles. You should get 3 rissoles per person. TIP: Pack the rissoles firmly so they hold together while cooking.


Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add 1/2 the rissoles and cook, flipping occasionally, until golden and cooked through, 3-4 minutes each side. Set aside on a plate and repeat with the remaining rissoles. TIP: Don't worry if the rissoles char a little, this adds to the flavour!


While the rissoles are cooking, slice the cherry tomatoes in half. In a large bowl, combine 1 tbs olive oil with the balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well. Add the cherry tomatoes, shaved Parmesan cheese (see ingredients list) and cos lettuce mix. Just before serving, toss to coat in the dressing.


Divide the kumara wedges, pork and apple rissoles and salad between plates. Serve with garlic aioli.
