    Sweet Potato Rosti

    Made it yesterday
    This is an unusual variation on a classic. The use of sweet potatoes makes this an original and ideal vegetarian starter for any dinner party. Serve with a sprinkling of salad leaves and a glass of soft red wine, to really set the mood for a good evening. Alternatively, make the same quantity and give the family a warming supper. As a starter this serves 6, as a supper or lunch it serves 4.

    750g Sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
    Olive oil, for frying
    1 Small onion, finely chopped
    1 Clove of garlic, finely chopped
    200g Goats cheese (or any other stilton also works well
    2 Small eggs, beaten
    Salt and ground black pepper
    Squeeze the liquid out of the grated potato and place into a bowl.
    Lightly fry the onion and garlic in the oil, until they have softened and turned a golden colour. Add to the potato.
    Add the eggs and half the cheese to the potato mix and season as required.
    Divide the mixture into six, and mould into cakes with your hands.
    Place the cakes onto a greased baking tray, and drizzle each with a little olive oil.
    Bake in the oven at 210 degrees C for 20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
    Remove from the oven and scatter the remaining cheese on top. Brown for 5 minutes under the grill, and serve immediately.
