Potato Rosti

Sweet Potato Rosti – Recipe

Potato Rosti are an essential component of your Burns Night feast. These Sweet Potato Rosti from Heather Richards change up the traditional recipe for sweet potato, meaning they have a lower glycemic load to keep blood sugar balanced, and are packed with beta-carotene, a fat-soluble antioxidant that accumulates in the fatty layer of the skin protecting against ageing and wrinkles.


  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 whisked eggs
  • 2 tablespoons buckwheat (GF) or other flour
  • Sea salt
  • Olive oil for cooking


  • Scrub and grate the sweet potato
  • Peel and chop the onions and garlic
  • Put potato, onion, garlic and whisked egg in a bowl and mix well
  • Add flour gradually, mixing well as you go
  • Add enough flour so that the mixture becomes stiff enough to make rounds.
  • Make rounds from the mixture and fry in olive oil until golden – approx 4-5 minutes on each side
  • Serve with your traditional Scottish feast for Burns Night or with poached egg, hummus or pesto for the rest of the year!
