You can make these cakes from scratch or use up cooked left-overs from a roast. Mashed, roasted and boiled potatoes will all work.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch spring onions, sliced
  • butter, for frying
  • 200g potatoes, peeled, cooked and roughly mashed
  • 100g savoy cabbage, winter greens or Brussels sprouts, shredded and cooked
  • a small bunch coriander, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2, poached eggs, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook half the spring onions in a knob of butter, then mix with the potato mash, cabbage (or other greens) and half the coriander. Season well. Form the mixture into four small cakes using your hands.

  • STEP 2

    To make the salsa, mix the rest of the coriander and spring onions with the tomatoes, olive oil and vinegar.

  • STEP 3

    Fry the cakes in a little more butter for 5 minutes on each side over a medium heat until golden and crisp. Serve two cakes per person, topped with a poached egg and some of the salsa.
