Smashed Avocado on Potato Fritters

Serves: 4-6

Preparation: 15 minutes

Cooking: 15 minutes

 

Ingredients

2 avocados, stone removed
6 medium potatoes
1 cup cherry tomatoes
2 eggs
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, sliced
Pinch of salt & freshly ground pepper
Pinch of toasted seasame seeds (optional)

 

Method   

Wash potatoes and grate using a food processor or grater. Sprinkle potatoes with salt. Place potatoes in a clean tea towel and squeeze to get all the excess liquid out

Place grated potatoes in bowl and add eggs, mix well 

Heat a pan over medium heat and add oil. To make the fritters, drop potatoes into pan (2 large spoonfuls per fritter), using back of the spoon to spread fritters. Turn down the heat and cook until fritters turn golden – usually around 7-10 minutes

Once all the fritters are cooked place onto a plate

Mash the avocado and place a spoonful on top of each fritter.  Place cherry tomatoes on the avocado. Season with salt & pepper, sprinkle with basil and sesame seeds if using
