Sweet Potato Chick'p Nuggets

We were up very early this morning, so I decided to do a bit of batch cooking to help move the morning along. These chick'p nuggets are quick, easy and super healthy!

You will need:
1/4 cup of organic whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 cup organic whole wheat flour 
1 organic egg 
1/2 sweet potato (or 1 small one)
1 can organic chick peas (washed and drained)
1/3 cup shredded courgette
1 garlic clove

- steam sweet potatoes until soft, put in fridge to cool
- then add sweet potatoes, chick peas, courgettes, minced garlic glove and egg to food processor, mix till blended
- finish off by adding bread crumbs and flour, mix again until incorporated
- with wet hands, make patties and place on a parchment lined tray and refrigerate for atleast 30 mins ( patties will be very messy!)
- pan fry with about a tablespoon of organic raw coconut oil until golden on both sides
- enjoy immediately or freeze for future meals

Dipping sauce: 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice and rind of 1/2 lemon and Greek yogurt 

-Because these are for kids we didn't add salt/seasonings, but a bit of cumin or cayenne mixed in would be great, as well as fresh coriander or flat leaf parsley.
-When reheating, highly recommend using the oven, microwave can make them a little mushy.
