Bubble and Squeak with Sweet Potato and Leek

So it is two days after Christmas and I am surprised that I have not yet turned into a mince pie with the amount I have been consuming! I am now craving fresh, colourful food so my body can finally have some vitamins after many festive chocolates, stuffing balls and glasses of bubbly. Thankfully, along came this vibrant dinner to rescue me out of my rich and calorific Christmas food hole!

I blooming love bubble and squeak. Growing up I was often in charge of smushing (highly technical term) together the leftover veggies into bubble and squeak patties for the family to enjoy on Boxing Day. It is the perfect post-Christmas dinner and if you have never tried it you have been seriously missing out.

I also love this recipe purely because of the leeky-squeaky rhyming title. I shall have to make an effort to make more poetic vegan recipes.
Easy cheesy peas? Plumble Crumble? Toffee Coffee Cake?
Not sure how delicious these sound however…
