Today, I’ve brought you a recipe that some of you may already be familiar with, but, instead of the usual potato I’ve used sweet potato instead. Sweet potato is the healthier, more delicious cousin of the potato! This recipe is very easy to make and doesn’t take long. Who said that eating well isn’t easy?
Sweet potato was brought to Europe from America by Christopher Columbus and is also known as Chaco or batata. Sweet potatoes have long been overlooked even though they belong to the same family as the potato, which have less nutrients.
Sweet potatoes on the other hand are very nutritious, they contain fiber, iron, potassium, vitamin C and zinc, plus, they also contain fewer calories.
Baked Stuffed Sweet Potato
- 2 medium-sized sweet potatoes
- Ground beef
- 1/4 cup organic sour cream (or greek yogurt)
- Diced onion
- Cheddar or Provolone Cheese
Turn the oven to 180ºC. Wash and peel your sweet potatoes and then place them on a tray with aluminum foil.
Bake the potatoes until they are soft and a fork can easily pierce them.
Remove them from the oven and slice them down the middle, lengthwise. Separate them with a knife just enough without them disconnecting.
Add two tablespoons of ground beef to each sweet potato and a little grated cheese.
Bake again for 10 minutes until the cheese starts to bubble. Remove from the oven and let sit for a few minutes.
Serve hot. Add two tablespoons of sour cream and chopped chives.
