Sweet potato goat’s cheese mash

Sweet potato mash

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Christmas is the only time when I have an excuse to eat twice as much potato for dinner!

I love my roasties, and I love my mash, but I’m sure that both are the main players in the food coma I annually find myself in following a good Christmas dinner.

So, why not replace traditional mashed potato with a slightly lighter sweet potato mash?

As part of my 25 days of blogmas Christmas veg series, I’ve developed a deliciously festive sweet potato goat’s cheese mash recipe that I hope will get your tastebuds tingling!

Think nutmeg, goat’s cheese and large spoonfuls of creamy sweet potato. Hope you enjoy making this one!


Serves 4

  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 100g goat’s cheese, cubed
  • 2tsp ground nutmeg
  • 4tsp chives


Boil the sweet potatoes over a medium heat for approx 20 mins, until soft when stabbed with a fork. Drain and return to the hob with the goat’s cheese, nutmeg and chives. Mash and serve with extra chives to taste.


This sweet potato goat’s cheese mash goes great with my honey roasted root veg recipe:
