Potato, Mushroom and Leek Croquettes

Make these weight loss friendly croquettes a little bigger for a main meal with a selection of fresh veggies or have a few smaller croquettes as an accompaniment for a variety of main dishes.

Ingredients: Serves two

  • ½ tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
  • 225g potatoes boiled and mashed
  • 175g close cup mushrooms wiped and sliced
  • 1 medium leek, chopped, just use the mainly white part
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme about a handful from the bunch
  • 50g grated cheese (any hard cheese, Wensleydale’s a nice one)
  • Pinch of ground sea salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg yolk and white separated
  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 100g panko breadcrumbs

Prep

Place mushrooms, leek, and thyme in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped, combine with the mashed potato and add the cheese, salt and pepper and egg yolk.  Shape mixture into eight 7cm / 3 inch long croquettes.

Roll the croquettes first in the flour, then egg white and finally the breadcrumbs and gently cook in a little oil 4 minutes on each side or until golden.  Serve as a main dish with selection of green vegetables, or as an accompaniment to a main dish, these croquettes are spot on with the broccoli cheese dish.
