Roasted sweet potato

Roasted sweet potato

After I made some sweet potato burgers, I had some left-over sweet potatoes. I decided to roast them for an easy, healthy, vegan meal. On this page I’m telling you how to roast sweet potatoes in the microwave. 
Did you know that sweet potatoes aren’t actually potatoes, and they contain less carbs and less calories than regular potatoes? And I think they’re more tasty too!

Normally you roast potatoes in the oven and it takes quite a while, but did you know that you can also roast (sweet) potatoes in the microwave?

It’s really easy! Just pierce one sweet potato per person with a fork at 3 or 4 places. Put them in a microwave proof bowl, and microwave for 4 minutes. Then turn them around and microwave for another 4 minutes. Then take the bowl out of the oven, cover it with aluminum foil and let it steam for about 10 minutes.
Cut your sweet potato through the middle and fill with stuffing of your choice.

You can for example use hummus, avocado, roasted pine nuts, fresh parsley and basil. Like pictured above.

Or go for rocket, grilled peach, cucumber and yellow bell pepper like the picture below.
