Potato, Carrot and Parsnip Cakes.

The 2 things I always have in my kitchen is potatoes and carrots. At the moment parsnips are cheap in my local shop so there is few of them around as well. Mix them together with a few spices and this is what you end up with.

350g Carrots.
350g Parsnip.
350g Potatoes.
125g Bread Crumbs
1/2 tsp Ground Coriander.
1/2 tsp Ground Cumin.
I egg, beaten
Salt & Black Pepper.

Peel and chop the carrots, parsnip and potatoes to roughly the same size.  Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. Drain and mash. Add the ground cumin and ground coriander, Leave to cool.
Add the beaten egg, the bread crumbs and the seasoning,  Mix until all combined.
Shape into 8 cakes and if you have the time chill for 30 minutes.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.

Lovely served with a green veg.
