Sweet potato combines with tangy goat cheese to make a delicious starter or side dish. It's great served with a salad.

  • 500g sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 175g goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 eggs, beaten


    1. Preheat the oven to 220 C / Gas mark 7. Line a baking tray with parchment.
    2. Grate the sweet potatoes; place in a clean cloth and squeeze out the excess liquid; transfer to a large bowl.
    3. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat; cook the onion and garlic in the hot oil until soft; transfer to the bowl with the drained sweet potato; add about 2/3 of the goat cheese and mix well. Divide the mixture into 4 even portions and shape into balls with your hands and then flatten them to about 1cm (1/2 in) thickness. Arrange the patties onto the baking tray.
    4. Roast in the preheated oven until golden brown; about 25 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining goat cheese over the patties and return to oven to melt the cheese, about 5 minutes more.

This recipe works really well! It's one of my main student meals. If you have powdered cheese or finely grated parmesan etc... and sprinkle it in, just a tiny bit, instead of heaping on goats cheese this also works well too for a slightly cheaper healthier option

Atlast a decent recipe from a member apart from me!Very nice. I didn't actually have sweet potatoes so i just used normal ones, still worked nicely.But, even though it is second nature to most people (you or I) you should still mention to season, and you also didn't mention when to add egg, not that you actually need it, you may aswell take that off the ingredients. If you have any other recipes I will definitely try to use them soon!
