Sweet Potato Balls

Hello everyone, I hope the weather is nice and warm wherever you are in the world. The UK has been pretty sunny this week and its great!

Following on from the vegetarian recipes, today features sweet potatoes which are a savior when eating vegetarian meals. It makes a change from normal potatoes and tastes delicious. Sweet potatoes are also very nutritional depending upon how they are cooked and provide the body with fibre, vitamin C and many other nutritional benefits.

As you can see in the image below, I ate the sweet potato with broccoli and sweetcorn which complimented the slight oiliness of the fried potato. These sweet potato balls were soft on the inside with a crispy outer layer and would go great in a wrap/tortilla.
