Mandela Cakes

Mandela cakes

450g yams peeled
1 onion, grated
Handful of fresh chives, finely chopped
125g feta cheese, grated
1 egg, lightly beaten, to bind
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp coconut oil

Boil the yams in a pan of salted water for 12-15 minutes until soft. Drain, then mash. Mix the mashed yams with the onion, chives, feta cheese, and egg. Season with salt and black pepper.

Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Using floured hands, scoop up balls of the yam mixture, roll, and flatten slightly.  Fry for 2–3 minutes on each side. Serve hot.
