Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt flakes

To serve

  • butter, tuna mayo, chilli con carne, baked beans, cheese or green salad (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Scrub the sweet potatoes clean, put on a baking tray and prick all over with a fork. Drizzle each with a little oil and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt flakes. Put in the oven for 45 mins to 1 hr, depending on their size, until crisp on the outside, and they're pierced easily with a small knife. Serve as a side with butter, or add a filling of your choice.
