Almond potatoes with goat's cheese

Side Serves 4 30 min
This is a quick and simple dish a bit like traditional Swiss rostis. For a speedy vegetarian breakfast, lunch or dinner, eat with spinach and a fried egg. Or have these as a side to grilled meat. This can be made with both floury and waxy potatoes: the first gives a more mash-like consistency while and second retains the individual potato strands.


  • 3 large potatoes, peeled
  • 100g flaked almonds
  • 70g goat's cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 20 min
  • Step 1

    Keeping the potatoes whole, place in a pan and cover with boiling, salted water and boil for 5-10 minutes, depending on the size.
  • Step 2

    Remove and grate coarsely into a bowl. Stir in the almonds, both cheeses and season well.
  • Step 3

    Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan and drop in spoonfuls of the potato mix, flattening each dollop to a height of about 1 cm with the back of a spoon.
  • Step 4

    Cook for a few minutes over a medium heat until browned and turn over to do the same on the other side.
  • Step 5

    Remove and drain on kitchen paper before serving immediately.
