Really nice recipe - Even my fussy 17 month old wolfed them down oblivious he was eating vegetables! I also blended in some bell peppers and grated carrot, lovely!

Yummy and brilliant - these are a great supper, really tasty and filling. I make loads more than the recommended amount because everyone always wants more.

So tasty! I didn't have any cumin, coriander or harissa paste/chilli..so instead I put in some curry powder, paprika and a little garlic :)

I added more spices than stated in the recipe but all in all very good. So quick and easy to make. Went down very well with my meat-eating other half.

Eating these right now! :) I used fresh coriander instead of parsley and added some paprika as well. I baked them for about 5 mins on each side and then fried them quickly in a pan to get a crispy crust. Absolutely DELICIOUS! My partner loves them too :D
