  • For the salad: Lettuce, rocket, radish, radish sees pods, tomatoes, calendula, cornflower, borage
  • For the fritters: carrots, chives, parsley, coriander

Savoury fritters


  • 2 medium (approx. 220g) Carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 medium (approx. 265g) Sweet Potato, peeled and grated
  • 1 cup (125g) Cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup (70g) Plain Wholemeal Flour
  • 1 Spring onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 Eggs, lightly beaten


Add the grated carrot, sweet potato, cheese, spring onion, parsley and wholemeal flour into a large mixing bowl and stir until combined. 

Add the eggs and mix well.

Spray waffle machine with oil (if needed) and heat to a medium setting (if it has settings.)

Place 2/3 – 1 cup of the mixture in the centre of the waffle machine and spread a little to the sides. Close and cook for approx. 5 mins, until browned, crispy and cooked through in the centre. Remove from waffle machine and place on a wire rack. 

Repeat until all the mixture has been used up.

Chocolate cornflake cakes served with red berries 


  • 50g butter
  • 100g dark chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 100g cornflakes


Weigh out the ingredients. Older children can do this by themselves with supervision and little ones can help to pour or spoon ingredients into the weighing scales. Put 50g butter, 100g milk or dark chocolate, broken into chunks and 3 tbsp golden syrup in a saucepan or microwavable bowl. Put 100g cornflakes in another large bowl.

Melt the weighed butter, chocolate and golden syrup in the saucepan over a low heat or briefly in the microwave. Allow to cool a little before pouring over the cornflakes.

Stir the ingredients together gently using a wooden spoon. Spoon the mixture into 12 cupcake cases arranged on a muffin tray (or baking sheet, if you don’t have one). Grown ups will need to do this for younger children or simply arrange on a tray and let the mess happen. Put in the fridge to set.
