Baked sweet potatoes are great with barbecues or as an accompaniment to a roast. I've found they also satisfy vegetarians as they have that little something that an ordinary baked potato doesn’t – especially if you scatter a little extra cheese over the top of them a few minutes before removing them from the oven.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 medium-sized sweet potatoes, washed and halved
salt
freshly ground black pepper
40g butter
2 small red or green chillies, finely chopped
80g mature cheddar, grated, (optional)
1-2 tablespoons clear honey

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Score the sweet potato flesh in a criss-cross with the point of a sharp knife, transfer to a baking tray and season with salt and pepper. Divide the butter between the halves, then scatter over the chilli slices and cheese, if using. Spoon the honey over each, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue cooking for another 15 minutes or so until the potatoes feel tender to the point of a knife. Serve with grilled or roasted meats or fish.
