Sweet Potato Fritters


Jump To The Beet - Sweet Potato Fritters For a sweater wearing breakfast that makes you feel like your winning against the elements, colour is key. I’ve been making a lot of pretty looking smoothies and porridges lately but last night I had chance to prepare these sweet potato & bean fritters.

These came out so well that I have to share them with you. People are always expressing worry that vegans don’t get enough protein, iron or B12. These fritters have it all, with a nutritional yeast (contains B12) and pumpkin seed (protein packed) crust so dig in and feel upbeat about winter.
