If you’re looking a dinner party recipe that’s out of this world and really different from the norm, why not give this sweet potato rösti a try? The creaminess of the goats’ cheese mixed with the sweetness of the potatoes and the roasted red peppers makes for a really satisfying combination, while crunchy kale adds another layer of texture to this dish.

This delicious dish serves four and doesn’t take too long to whip up, so would make a great dinner party starter option or could even be served up as a tasty lunch idea. You can prepare it ahead too so it’s really easy to be organised.



For the rösti:

  • 750g sweet potatoes
  • 3tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 free-range eggs, beaten

To serve:

  • 200g soft goats' cheese (for grilling), sliced
  • roasted red peppers, rocket and crispy kale


  1. Peel the sweet potatoes, then coarsely grate. Set aside. Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan and gently cook the garlic and onion until soft. Mix into the sweet potatoes with the eggs, remaining oil and plenty of seasoning. Shape into patties and put on oiled baking trays. Drizzle the tops with a little oil.
  2. Heat the oven to 180C fan, gas 6. Bake the rösti for 30 minutes then reduce the oven to 160C fan, gas 4 and bake for a further 20 minutes. Remove, then heat the grill. Divide the goats' cheese between the rösti and grill until just melted. Serve with the peppers, rocket and kale.
