Making vegetables cake is an easy way to eat vegetables and it is always beautiful because full of colours. This recipe is using kale, sweet potatoes and leeks and there is no egg on purpose, one egg can be used without problem for adding more consistency to the whole recipe. As I decided to not adding egg, I use a kind of cookie cutter for making the rosti and then I bake them in the oven.
The cakes are topped with parmesan and paprika but all topping will be nice.
