Serves: 1
  • 1 Sweet potato, med size
  • Salt & Black pepper to taste
  • 1 Tsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp low fat sharp cheddar
  • ½ cup Baked beans, Recipe HERE or use Heinz baked beans (If using canned, adjust salt, red chilli and sugar to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp green onions, chopped
  • Dollop of thick greek yogurt or sour cream (optional)
  1. Scrub the potato really well and clean with water. Poke holes inside the potato using a knife. Put the sweet potato in a ziplock and sprinkle little water to it. Put it inside the microwave and cook it on high for 2-3 minutes until soft. Take it out and let it cool down to touch. OR you can bake it in oven.
  2. Cut it open in half, be careful not to cut it all the way. Using a fork take out all the pulp from inside but keep it inside the skin only and to it add salt, black pepper, butter and cheese. Put it back in microwave for another minute. Mix all the ingredients inside using a fork and add hot baked beans. Garnish with green onions and yogurt if using. Serve.
