Prep time 10mins
Cook time 1hr 15mins
Serves or Makes: 4 pers
- 4 large sweet potatoes
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 2 tablespoons chives, chopped
- 2 tablespoons mint, chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Extra mint and chives for garnish
Rinse the sweet potatoes well and leave the skin. Prick with a fork or knife all the sides of the sweet potatoes. Place the potatoes in the oven for 1h to 1h15 at 400°F. They should be tender by pricking a knife, if it’s still a bit hard, then leave it longer in the oven.
Just before the end of cooking, prepare the cheese. Mix the cottage cheese with chives, mint, salt and pepper.
When the sweet potatoes are cooked, open them with a knife and season with salt and pepper. Then add the cheese and a few mint leaves and chopped chives. Serve.
