sweetcorn, sweet potato and polenta fritters

This one goes well with a salad, or with mashed celeriac.

You will need

*1 tin sweetcorn
*1 small sweet potato
*2 spring onions
*75g polenta
*25g wholewheat flour
*1teaspoon baking powder
*1 tablespoon sage
*1 tablespoon parsley

First, peel and chop the sweet potato and boil in half an inch of water. While it's bubbling away, mix the polenta, flour, baking powder and herbs in a large bowl.

When the sweet potato is soft, mash in its water. Drain the sweetcorn and add to the bowl together with the watery, mashed sweet potato.

Mix well and leave to stand while you heat 1cm of oil in a frying pan. Shape the batter into fritters and fry until golden brown.
