Slow Baked Sweet Potato

This is not a recipe as such, the actual ‘cooking’ involved is minimal but the results you get could not taste better! I used to eat slow baked potatoes from my university canteen all the time and recently had a craving. To make it a little bit more exciting I decided to make Slow Baked Sweet Potato with Cottage Cheese and Salad. Here is how to bake your potato to perfection:

Ingredients (For One)

  • 1 Sweet Potato (around 350g)
  • 100g of Cottage Cheese
  • 200g of Fresh Salad
  • 1tbsp of Oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 150C
  2. Wash the sweet potato in warm water
  3. Pat dry and poke with a fork several times
  4. Then brush with the oil and wrap in foil
  5. Place in the preheated oven and leave for 4 hours
  6. Once slow baked remove from the oven and cut down the middle
  7. Fill with the cottage cheese and serve with salad

Simplicity at its best!  Delicious and low calorie I am not sure there is a better meal on my weekly shopping list than this Slow Baked Sweet Potato at the moment!
