A simple but delicious #FreshTake on Kūmara. A simple tea time snack, topped with Francis' secret ingredient... ice cream!


  • Medium gold kūmara (can also use red kūmara) - 2
  • 1 Coconut or 500g Desiccated coconut
  • Coconut sugar - 5-6 Tbsp
  • Olive oil - 1 Tbsp
  • Ice cream, to serve


  1. If using fresh coconut, begin by cracking open the coconut and draining the coconut water. Remove the shell and chop the flesh into chunks. Add to a food processor and blitz until a crumbly texture.

  2. In a medium bowl, add the coconut and coconut sugar, mix together to combine. Set aside. If using desiccated coconut, and the mix is too dry, add a little bit of coconut water to moisten.

  3. Slice the kumara into 5mm thick slices.

  4. Heat oil in a large frying pan on a medium heat. Add the kūmara slices and cook, turning often for about 3 minutes. Until cooked through and golden brown. Remove from heat.

  5. Once the kūmara are cooled slightly, assemble by adding a tablespoon of coconut mixture to one slice of the kumara. Add another slice on top like a sandwich and press lightly together.

  6. Serve with ice cream
