  1. Whizz the ingredients for the dip together in a food processor until smooth and glossy. Chill until ready to serve.

  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a baking tray with baking parchment. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients for the patties together with a large spatula until well blended. Form the mixture into 12 round patty shapes, roughly 6cm wide, by pressing together between your palms. They will feel wet, but this helps to keep them moist during baking.

  3. Put the sesame seeds in a bowl and coat the patties. Lay each patty on the baking tray and bake for 20 mins or until firm to the touch and lightly golden, then serve with the dip.

So easy (particularly if you have a food processor and grating disc). Delicious and even better the next day hot or cold.

Have made these lots of times now as a starter and they always go down very well. Easy to make, can be made in advance, delicious and healthy. What more can you ask for?

I made these and really liked them. The spices are great and prevent them from being bland. They're also not sweet despite having apple and beetroot. I've been told I have to make the avocado dip a lot more too!
