Sweet potato is bursting with flavour, as well as beta-carotene, fibre and antioxidants like vitamins C and E, so it’s a great alternative to the trusty white jacket.

Ingredients

  • 200g sweet potato
  • 50g ripe avocado flesh, roughly chopped
  • ½ medium tomato, finely chopped
  • juice of ½ lime (or 1 tbsp bottled juice)
  • 30g red onion, finely chopped
  • 10g fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • Pinch cumin
  • Ground black pepper
  • ½ red or green chilli, finely chopped (omit for a milder flavour)

Method

  1. Wash the sweet potato and prick all over with a fork.
  2. Place on a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven (180°C, gas 4) for about 40 mins, or until it yields slightly when you press it gently. Alternatively, microwave on high for 5-8 minutes (first wrap in 2 sheets of kitchen paper towel to absorb the moisture from cooking and create a crispier skin than you’d usually get from a microwave oven).
  3. Meanwhile, mash the avocado in a bowl with a fork, then add the tomato, lime juice, onion, coriander and cumin, season with ground black pepper, and stir well.
  4. When the potato is ready, cut a cross in the top and push upwards around it to loosen the flesh – this makes it easier to scoop out. Mash the flesh in a bowl, stir in the guacamole, then serve in the potato skin.
  5. Smart tip: Alternatively, use 200g white potato, baked at 200°C, gas 6 for about 1 hour, or microwaved on high for 7-10 minutes (290 kcal, 6g protein, 42g carbs, 11g fat, 4g fibre).
