The mixture is not doughy so don't put too much flour into them. It should be a little moist but not dripping with liquid.

I still hand mix the final mixture as I have previously found my TMX doesn't mix it gently enough. I have tried it and it usually breaks up the silverbeet too much and therefore releases too much liquid from the silverbeet. 

Any steamed vegetables would work to make these.  I also love potato and silverbeet.

My family love these.  I have been eating them since a little girl. This recipe is from my Aregentinean grandmother so are a little different to a normal croquette as they aren't crumbed.

Thank you to my grandmother for letting me adapt your recipe xx
