Baked sweet potatoes with goat's cheese topping

Alicia Taylor

Sweet potatoes are full of sugar, which means they crisp and caramelise beautifully in the oven. That’s a start, but the toppings are the hero here: a sharp, creamy filling of goat’s cheese, sour cream and chives, a scatter of roasted nuts and seeds for crunch, and mint for freshness. Serve them on their own, or as a tricked-up side with a roast in place of jacket potatoes.


Goat's cheese topping


1.Preheat oven to 240°C. Place sweet potatoes on an oven tray, rub with oil and season to taste, then roast until crisp, golden and tender (30 minutes).
2.For goat’s cheese topping, stir ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Season to taste.
3.Score potatoes deeply, stuff with goat’s cheese filling, top with nuts and seeds and scatter with mint.
