Feta Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork so that their excess moisture can escape while they are cooking.
  • Wrap them in aluminum foil, place them in a baking pan and roast them in the oven for about 50 minutes, until completely soft.
  • The time they will need to cook depends on their size. If your sweet potatoes are too large they will need more time to bake. You can prick them with a small knife to see if they are soft. If the knife sinks into the sweet potato flesh without any resistance, then they are ready.
  • As soon as they are soft, remove from oven. Unwrap them from the foil and carefully cut them in half, lengthwise. Use a fork to remove the sweet potato flesh, leaving the shells intact. You will fill them again when the filling is ready.
  • Transfer the flesh to a bowl and mash a little with a fork. Season with salt and pepper. Add some crumbled feta cheese and finely chopped chives and mix to combine.
  • Fill the sweet potato skins with the filling. Add a small cube of butter to each and serve.

Tip

For a vegan version, use tofu instead of feta cheese!
