Sweet Potato and Red Cabbage Croquettes

Sweet Potato and Red Cabbage Croquettes

Some dishes just come into existence out of the need to use up small bits of remaining vegetables. Half a sweet potato and a small wedge of red cabbage came together for these surprisingly interesting croquettes. Some were deep-fried unbreaded, and some were breaded and pan-fried.

The croquettes, along with pan-fried polenta cakes and lightly steamed broccoli, made quite a filling dinner.

Ingredients
½ large sweet potato
½ to ¾ cup finely chopped red cabbage
2 to 3 high fiber whole wheat bread slices
1 tsp Cajun seasoning salt (more to taste)
½ tsp cumin powder (optional)
½ tsp coriander powder (optional)

Canola or vegetable oil for frying

Preparation
  1. Microwave/Steam the sweet potato till soft, drain and pat dry; mash it along with the rest of the ingredients, adding enough bread to be able to shape the dough; shape into small logs
  2. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a grill-pan over medium-high heat, place the shaped logs, allow to brown, turn around and brown all sides; if breadcrumbs are handy, bread the logs before shallow pan-frying
  3. Alternately, deep fry

    Hi Sheela,

    First time here, When I was searching for red cabbage recipes come across your blog, and I would say I fall in love with it. The healthy way cook and try use most of the vegetables is much similar to my style also. I have inspired by this recipe idea and made this with some variations. You can check it out here.
