- In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients (except the grated beetroot). Finally stir in the beets using a form, just until it's dispersed without bleeding too much color into the mixture.

- Divide batter into 6 and shape into 1 inch thick patties. Place patties on a baking tray lined with cling film or wax paper.

Step 3: Fry and Assemble

Grand prize! Congrats!

How do you take your pictures - do you have any special lighting? They are really well lit!

Thanks so much Yonatan24!!! No, I do not use artificial lighting - just good old fashioned natural daylight!

Thanks for the reply! I like filming in indirect sunlight - it produces beautiful photos! :)

It really is awesome to eat - and you can grab another one, free from all forms of guilt - sweet potatoes are crazy rich in nutrients!
