EpiVegan’s Fiery Potato Cakes

These potato cakes have few ingredients but are perfect for a breakfast with a kick or as side dish to a variety of meals. They are also a great use for leftover mash potato (just skip the steps for making the mash potato in the recipe). This recipe was kindly shared by food blogger EpiVegan for our vegan meal plan.

Mild & Light In Colour Olive Oil

This Olive Oil is a healthy substitute for other cooking oils. With its high smoke point it is the ideal choice for frying, stir-frying and baking. The light bouquet allows the natural flavour of food to come through.
