Cook the sweet potato for approx. 15 minutes until soft. Drain and mash well.
Add the olive oil, onion and garlic to a saucepan and cook for 5-10 minutes until soft. Add the mashed sweet potato to the pan along with the seasoning. Stir together until mixed thoroughly.
Allow to cool before shaping into 4 circular patties approx. 1 inch thick. Coat in a generous, even layer of polenta. Refrigerate for approx. 30 minutes.
Heat a mild oil (such as rapeseed) in a frying pan and cook the potato cakes for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden.
Serve with your desired topping or sides.
