Roasted Sweet Potato with Chickpeas and Goat Cheese

Course Main Course, Side Dish
Servings 2


  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 can chickpeas or equivalent cooked
  • 200 g goat cheese or feta
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 handful coriander
  • Harissa to serve


  • Preheat oven 200°C. Cut the sweet potatoes length-ways and then place on a baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and rub all over and then place the sweet potatoes face down.
  • Place in oven and roast for about 45 minutes, until browned and tender all the way through.
  • Take out the oven and turn each half over. Sprinkle the chickpeas and goat cheese over the sweet potatoes and then return them to the oven for 5-10 minutes if you fancy (often I don't).
  • Drizzle with some nice olive oil, season with salt and pepper, squeeze over a little lemon juice and shower in coriander. Serve with some harissa on the side.
