RECIPE: Sweet potato, Leek and Lentil Pancakes

These came about because a while ago Isabella decided that she didn't want to be spoon fed at lunch time. She was fine with it at breakfast and dinner but would not eat anything I tried to feed her at lunch time. She only ate finger food, so we did more baby led weaning at lunch time - no more throwing away meals she refused to eat! I was having to think how I can try and create 'meals' as finger food, hence the creation of these savoury pancakes. They're cheesy, creamy and full of goodness!

What you'll need:
2 Sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 Carrots, peeled and finely cubed  
1 Leek, chopped
30g Mild cheddar, grated
4 tbsp Wholemeal plain flour
1/2 can Lentils, drained
2 Eggs
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Italian herbs 
1 tbsp Vegetable oil

What to do:
1) Put the sweet potato, leek and carrots into a microwavable bowl with a splash of water. Cover with clingfilm and microwave for 7 minutes - the sweet potato should be completely cooked and the carrots slightly firm still.
2) Mash the vegetables with a fork, it doesn't need to be smooth. Stir in the herbs, cinnamon, wholemeal flour, cheese, lentils and egg. 
3) Heat a 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan over a medium/high heat. Spoon the mixture into the frying pan, creating your desired size pancakes.
4) Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side and serve.
Do you have any recipes for 'meals' as finger food?
