Sweet Potato Fritters (Vegan) Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 15 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 10 mins
▢ 1 medium sweet potato, (around 10oz/300g)
▢ 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
▢ 3 tbsp water
▢ 1 large onion
▢ 1/3 cup sweetcorn
▢ 1/2 cup flour
▢ 1/2 tsp salt
▢ 1 tsp cumin
▢ 1/2 tsp paprika
▢ 2 tbsp tomato paste
▢ 1 tbsp soy sauce
▢ 1 tbsp olive oil
1Peel and grate the sweet potato using the large side of the grater.
2Prepare the flax egg by stirring together ground flaxseed and water, and setting aside for 10 minutes until a gel-like consistency forms.
3Add the sweet potato, onion, sweetcorn, flour, salt, cumin, paprika, flax egg, tomato paste and soy sauce to a mixing bowl. Stir together well.
4Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan or skillet over a medium-high heat. Shape the fritters using your hands, then place them on the frying pan/skillet using a spatula. Flatten them down gently, and cook for 3-4 minutes. Then, flip and cook for 3-4 minutes more, until crispy and cooked all the way through.
5Remove from the frying pan and serve the fritters with any dip or sauce of your choice.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
