The start of a new year often signals detox and diets for most by around these parts I’m all about moderation.  
Whilst I may have indulged a tad over the last month I haven’t gone overboard as I try to make sure every meal I cook is packed with veg, so the naughty treats balance out! 
But back to today’s recipe. It’s not that healthy but it’s a yummy addition to a meat and veg dinner – dauphinoise sweet potatoes.  
Creamy, peppery baked potatoes- the ideal accompaniment to a lamb chop or a veggie bake. This was much first attempt and whilst it turned out really nicely, I’d make some amends time it, which I’ll share with you.  


  • Sweet potatoes 
  • Double cream
  • Spinach 
  • Milk 
  • 1 leek 
  • Grated cheddar cheese 
  • Salt, pepper and nutmeg to season 
  • Coconut oil

I followed a Lucy B tcoconut oil recipe I actually saw on Instagram, and it worked a treat!
