This post is part of our Love Food Hate Waste month*
Leftover mashed potato and cooked veg needn’t go in the bin. It can be covered and stored in the fridge, then used the next day to make these delicious potato cakes that are always a huge hit with kids.
These potato and vegetable cakes are flavoured with just a hint of chilli and a sprinkling of spring onions, then coated in breadcrumbs before baking rather than frying to keep the fat content low.
Kids will be able to get their hands into the bowl to form the cakes, which delightfully messy and loads of fun.
*Love Food Hate Waste was launched in 2007 and raises awareness of the need to reduce food waste and helps us all take action to tackle it. It shows that by doing some easy practical everyday things in the home we can all waste less food, which will ultimately benefit our purses and the environment too.
