Sweet potato rosti is a healthier alternative to the Swiss original. Baked and not fried, our sweet potato rosti have a lot less oil. They are made with chickpea flour, so they are vegan, tasty and gluten-free. You can enjoy the sweet potato rosti for breakfast or as a quick lunch. Sometimes, we even love to add them to our vegan sliders.
What are sweet potato rosti
Rösti or rööschti is a Swiss dish made from potatoes in the style of fritters. They are usually ate for breakfast but you can find them in restaurants as a side or you may even find them as a complete dish with spinach and egg. Traditionally a Swiss rosti is made with normal potatoes, but we wanted to challenge it and make it into a healthier vegan alternative, by using sweet potato as the main ingredient and baking it instead of frying in oil.
Potato rosti is also a common Hungarian dish usually as a street food snack or available during the Christmas markets.
How to make sweet potato rosti
Our sweet potato rostis are made with coarsely grated potato. We add chickpea flour, a little olive oil, seasoning and we shape them into rounds or patties, around 1-2 cm thick. We then bake them in the oven for around 15-20 minutes.
You can alter the taste of the sweet potato rosti by adding fresh herbs and apple to make it a little more interesting. You can serve it with a sweet chilli jam or vegan sour cream.
