Sweet Potato Tuna Fritters

One of things that is so important with healthy eating is eating fresh and planning a head! So if you ever find yourself stuck this is a recipe where you most likely have the ingredients already in your kitchen or growing on your window sill!

More often than not, I am on the go with work so I wanted to come up with / research some lunch or snack ideas that aren’t too messy to eat on the go that are free in syns.

The original recipe is here; however I adapted it to what I had available and it turned out even better than expected!

Just in case you are interested each fritter is approximately 96 calories, 12.6g carbs, 1.3g fat and 9g protein

For 6 servings, you will need potatoes; 1 white potato and 1 large sweet potato, fry lite, 1 tin of tuna in spring water, half a tin of sweetcorn kernels, handful of chopped spinach, handful of chopped coriander, handful of chopped chives and 1 whisked egg.

Prep time: 20 minutes.

Cooking time: 20 minutes.

Total: 40 minutes.

  • Peel and boil the potatoes for 15 minutes, then leave to cool – or pop in a bowl of cold water if in a rush. Once cooled these will need to be grated.
  • Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees C.
  • Whisk the egg in a bowl, add the chopped herbs/spinach, drained tuna and the half tin of sweetcorn. Stir and season.
  • Add the cooled grated potatoes and mix. This is where it can get messy; it is easier to use your hands to knead the ingredients together and make small pancake sized balls with the mixture.

  • Spray your baking tray with fry lite and pop each ball of mixture side by side (see picture).
