Smoked salmon kumara cakes

I love these nutritious salmon and kumara cakes. They are quick and easy to put together, packed with lots of flavour, and kid friendly. You can make them ahead of time, and they taste great the following day reheated.

Smoked salmon kumara cakes are a great family meal option. If your kids are not so keen on coriander, this can easily be removed or replaced with a little finely grated courgette (water squeezed out). When using kale make sure you remove the hard stems and then massage the leaves by scrunching them. This will soften the leaves, making them more enjoyable to eat.
