  • 500 g Grated Root Veg (carrots, parsnip, sweet potato, Jerusalem artichoke all work well)
  • 1 Onion or Leek (finely diced/sliced)
  • 1 thumb Fresh Ginger (grated)
  • 50 g Gram (chickpea) flour
  • 1 handful Wild Garlic (optional)
  • 1 tbsp Chopped herbs (I used coriander but use what you have)
  • 3 tbsp Live natural yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cucumber (deseeded and chopped small)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Ground Turmeric


  • Grate the vegetables into a large bowl
  • Add the diced onion, ginger and wild garlic (if using)
  • Sprinkle the salt over the top and using your hands massage it through the vegetables for a couple of minutes then set aside for 5 minutes. The salt will start to release the water from the vegetables.
  • After 5 minutes give the vegetables another good mix with your hands then add the gram flour and turmeric. Mix well again and set aside for a further 5 minutes.
  • Take a small handful of the mixture and roll it into a ball. Place it on a baking tray lined with baking paper and gently press down to make a patty. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-15 mins at 180 degrees. Once golden brown turn them over carefully and bake for a further 5 minutes.
  • Mix the yoghurt with the chopped cucumber and drizzle with the olive oil.
  • Serve the vegetable cakes hot with the yoghurt to dip into. Perfect as a starter, snack, or light lunch.
