- 250g mince
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup almond meal
- 3 cups baby spinach
- 1 tsp dijon mustard (optional)
- 25g tomato paste
- 2 Tbs sage
- 1 sweet potato, medium
- Olive oil
Preheat a fan-forced oven to 180° Celsius/350° Fahrenheit.
Place spinach in a bowl and cover with boiling water, leave for 2 minutes before draining as much liquid as possible from the spinach. Chop well.
Place spinach in a bowl along with mince, salt, almond meal, mustard, tomato paste and sage. Combine well.
Roll into 2.5cm size balls and place on an oven proof baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Meanwhile, heat enough oil in a frying pan for deep frying. Peel sweet potato then slice into ribbons using a vegetable peeler.

Remove from frying pan and place on a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
