Not all main courses need to be savoury and not all desserts need to be sweet. This main dish perfectly exemplifies this, with the sweet mixture of the Grape and Sweet Potato with the creamy, subtle bitterness of the brie.
Also it’s as easy as slice, layering and sticking in the oven, so there really is no excuse not to make it.
- Brie Cheese
- Seedless Grapes
- Sweet Potato
- Sweet white wine
- Rosemary (or another sweet herb)
Extra suggestions: Other sweet vegetables such as carrots and sweetcorn would work well. You could also substitute/add squashes or slice carrots for the sweet potato.
- Preheat your oven to 180C.
- Slice the Brie into fairly thin slices.
- Slice the Sweet potato into similarly sized slices
- Slice the grapes in half
- Layer on top of each other, occasionally sprinkling a dash of salt and herb on top. How you do this is entirely up to you and how much you have. I did about 4 layers of sweet potato, 3 of grapes and 2 of cheese. I recommend starting and finishing with the potato to help it all hold together.
- Pour over the wine until it almost reaches the top layer of potato.
- Bake in the oven until the sweet potato is soft throughout and the wine has mostly reduced. You may need to pour out a little excess if it’s too runny, but remember it will thicken on standing.
Serving and Storage
I recommend serving this with a few steamed vegetables and some fresh grapes to garnish. It’s a rich dish so you won’t need too much!
This will keep in the fridge for a day or so, but bear in mind it will become mushy upon reheating.
