While the sweet potatoes are cooking, prepare the kale – remove all stalks and finely chop the leaves. Cook in boiling water for 5-6 minutes until cooked through, then remove, drain well and set aside.

Using your hands, pull the sweet potato mixture together into walnut sized balls (note: if you find that the mixture is a bit too runny to shape, pop it in the fridge to set for ½ hour before shaping into balls). Place on the lined baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes.
