HOW TO: Baked Sweet Potatoes in 10 minutes

This is SO easy! If you can use the microwave, you can make this! WOOHOO!

I give you…

The Sweet Potato!

Sweet potatoes are Nutritional SUPERSTARS!

They are filled with carotenoids (an antioxidant), Vitamin C (another antioxidant), FIBER, iron, and potassium!

And at only 160 calories, it just can’t be beat!

I. Love. Sweet Potatoes. I want to marry them. Yes, I love them that much.

Okay, that’s enough talking, let’s get cooking (and eating!).

First, scrub that lil’ tuber clean.  Get any dirt and grime off, but DON’T peel it! You want to save those nutrients!

Next, place your sweet potato in a microwave safe bowl and poke that baby up, down and around.

Play nice…

Now stick the bowl in the microwave. I usually top it with a paper towel just in case we have an accidental explosion. So far, so good though…

Cook for 5 minutes. Flip. Cook for another 5 minutes. You may hear a hissing sound, but don’t worry, that’s normal.

Give the little guy a squeeze now. Be careful, it’s hot! If it’s still a little hard, blast it again for another 2 minutes.

Let your sweet potato sit for a couple minutes, then slice it open and add toppings!

I like a little unsalted butter and cinnamon.

To die for.

Dig in and ENJOY!
