3 tbsp olive oil

2 onions, sliced

4 sweet potatoes, peeled and grated

5 eggs

2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

380g mushrooms, sliced

10g fresh parsley, chopped


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and cook the onion until soft.

  2. Tip the cooked onion into a bowl with the sweet potato and 1 egg. Season, mix and shape into 4 patties.

  3. Heat 1 more tablespoon of oil in the pan. Fry the patties over a medium heat for 5 minutes on each side, until they turn golden. Once they’re cooked, put them on a plate and cover with foil to keep them warm.

  4. Heat the final tablespoon of oil in a separate pan. Add the garlic and mushrooms, and cook on a high heat for around 5 minutes, until they also turn golden. Sprinkle with parsley.

  5. In the meantime, poach the other 4 eggs.

  6. To serve, dish up the warm rostis, put the garlic mushrooms on top, and add a poached egg on top of that.


To store: We recommend eating these rostis straightaway, but once the patties have cooled, it’s possible to keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Vegan: To make this dish vegan, don’t bind the sweet potato mixture with egg - combine 2 tablespoons of chia seeds with 2 1/2 tablespoons of water, and use this mixture instead. You must also avoid serving this dish with a poached egg.
