Actually added goats cheese to this one which seemed to bring it up a notch. Just add a dollop of the creamy variety to the top of the mushrooms and enjoy! http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5157/sweet-potatoes-with-mushrooms-and-rosemary?binderbox=emailsent#3

tweaked with shallots, a bit of garlic and creme fraiche as someone suggested - delicious!

The sweet potato itself was scrumptious, I followed a recommendation to add crème fresh to which was lovely. Although, I felt that the mushroom flavour was lost in this recipe.

Added crème fraiche and garlic too as suggested by some other users. I also had a couple of shallots left over so added them to the mix too. Very yummy and so easy to make :)
