Equipment

  • Stovetop or Thermomix
  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 2 medium-large sweet potatoes
  • 2 medium zucchini, grated and the moisture removed
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups panko crumbs, for coating

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius (fan-forced). Lightly grease 2 non-stick baking trays and set aside. 
  • Peel and cut the sweet potato into chunks. Boil in a saucepan until tender. Drain well and place into a bowl. Mash with a fork. 
  • Add the drained zucchini (see note) and the grated cheddar cheese. Mix until well combined. 
  • Take tablespoon-sized spoons of mixture and shape to resemble a 'nugget'. 
  • Coat in the pink crumbs and place onto the prepared trays. 
  • Lightly spray with cooking oil and bake for 20 minutes. Turn and bake for a further 20 minutes or until slightly crunchy on the outside (the nuggets will be soft on the inside). 
  • Serve with sauce or chutney. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze in an airtight container for up to 2 months.

Notes

Drain all of the excess moisture off the grated zucchini by placing into a strainer and squeezing with a tea towel or paper towel.
