For 6 people (2 per person)
- 600g marrow (50p)
- 200 carrots (5p)
- 200g parsnips (10p)
- 200g potato (10p)
- 200g tomato (10p)
- 1 Spring onion (5p)
- 3 heaps tablespoons plain flour
- Garlic granules
- Black pepper
- Fresh rocket salad (£1)
- Home pickled red cabbage
- Beetroot dip
The whole marrow cost £1 in the market. The carrots cost 69p in Tesco
for a packet of 15+ units. Same for the parsnips. As usual the unpriced ingredients are already in the house. Total spent: £1.90 or 32p per person.
Peel and grate marrow, carrots, parsnips and potato. Squeeze out the extra water coming out of the vegetables and place in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
Finely cut the tomato and spring onion, add to the mix in the bowl. Now, add black pepper, salt, garlic combine well all the elements of the cake.
Now, using a table spoon, measure up a heap of the cake mix and form the cakes. Once they have all been shaped, heat 2 tablespoons of
vegetable oil in a frying pan and fry the cakes allowing 2 minutes per side.
Once all the cakes have been fried, place them on the oven grill pan wire, then place in the oven to bake and harden for 20 minutes at 160°C.
Since there are no eggs in the is mix, the plain flour and the potato starch will help to keep the cakes together and baking them will help to give it a bit more hold and hardness.
These cakes are not best reheated. But if they must be heated, they best wormed up in the oven.
Serve with your preferred dip.
I served mine with some home pickled red cabbage, beetroot dip and rocket salad.
