Normally I just roast sweet potato whole just as is, but this time I decided to do something a little different for a change. I sliced the sweet potato in half and placed it on a foil bed which I prepared with olive oil, salt, pepper, sweet chilli sauce and freshly picked sprigs of mint and lemon thyme. I placed the sweet potato face down in the bed and then closed up the foil. I then cooked it at 180 degrees Celsius for about an hour. This was a particularly large sweet potato but for smaller ones, 40 minutes should be more than adequate.
It took me a long time to adjust to completely replacing traditional potato with sweet potato but I can confidently say that I really prefer it now and so does my waistline. Haha!!! My son Jude also far prefers it and actually wont eat normal potato at all anymore, which to be honest - I am actually really grateful for because sweet potato is a real super food with a truck load of nutritional benefits. You can be just as creative with sweet potatoes too... which I think many people overlook... I did some sweet potato stacks recently, as an example... and they were nothing short of divine!! Well, if you try this out, please do share your thoughts :)
