  1. Steam the cauliflower pieces, garlic and steam the sweet potato in their skin. Pierce the cauliflower with a knife, make sure they are still tender not overcooked. Remove cauliflower and garlic and set aside. Pierce sweet potato with a knife until cooked through but not overcooked just tender. Peel skin off when warm. In a large bowl add 1 tbls ghee, 1 egg yolk, sea salt, garlic, cauliflower and sweet potato and mash roughly, chunky is best. Refrigerate mash until cool.
Pork and Apple filling
  1. Heat ghee for sautéing in a frypan.
  2. Add onion and cook until soft then add the pork mince and break up with a fork until it resembles tiny grains for mince.
  3. Add grated apple/any juices and carrot and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the coconut aminos, maple syrup (optional), ground ginger, cinnamon and garlic powder and stir. When it starts to simmer again add the tapioca and stir through cook for 5 minutes then let cool.
  5. Scoop a tbls of sweet potato/cauliflower mixture into your hands and mould into a ball, poke your finger in the middle to create a pocket. Add 1 tsp of the mince in this pocket and top with 1 tsp mash to totally seal in the mince filling with your hands. You can mould any shape you like.
  6. Fry in hot ghee turning frequently.
