Roasted Sweet Potatoes are awesome and we just have to share this recipe which we found on Food52! It was a little tricky to work out the calories as it’s difficult to judge the weight of Sweet Potatoes but as a guide we’ve assumed that they weigh about 400g each.

This one is a bit of an indulgence as the Goats Cheese is pretty high in calories and you’ll be have a large helping of Sweet Potato…. so go easy if you’re trying to lose a few pounds 🙂


  • 2 large sweet potatoes (around 400g each for the kcal count)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 100 grams chickpeas
  • 200 grams goat cheese
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • 1 handful fresh coriander

Roasted Sweet Potatoes Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400º F (200º C). Cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Brush the top and skins with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place the sweet potatoes cut side-down on a baking tray with parchment paper. Roast for 45 minutes, or until completely cooked through.
  2. Take the sweet potatoes out of the oven. Turn them over and use a fork to make little insertions in their soft flesh. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Divide the chickpeas and goat cheese over the four halves and place them back into the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the goat cheese has melted.
  4. Take the sweet potatoes out of the oven, drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil, some lemon juice to taste, and add the coriander. Serve and enjoy!
