Baked sweet potatoes
Healthy comfort food? Yup! Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber – which are important for gut health – so bake away.
1 sweet potato, cut in half
Salt, pepper, and chili flakes (skip chili if you want it less spicy)
2-3 tbsp sour cream
Chives to garnish, finely chopped
Pre-heat oven to 200C
Cut sweet potato in half lengthwise and use a fork to make holes in the skin side.
Place the sweet potato halves in oven-proof dish or on baking paper on baking tray, skin-side down.
Rub the top (orange side) with olive oil and sprinkle with salt pepper and chili-flakes on top.
Bake for about 1 hour or until soft and serve with sour cream and chopped chives to garnish.
