Healthy Eating - Baked Sweet Potato
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 large sweet potatoes
- 2 pinches dried oregano
- 2 pinches salt
- 2 pinches ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Coat the bottom of a glass or non-stick baking dish with olive oil, just enough to coat. Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Cut them into medium size pieces. Place the cut sweet potatoes in the baking dish and turn them so that they are coated with the olive oil. Sprinkle moderately with oregano, and salt and pepper (to taste). Bake in a preheated 175 degrees C oven for 60 minutes or until soft.
Baked sweet potatoes provide a nutritious alternative to a regular baked potato. Packed with vitamin A, this dish is a quick and tasty accompaniment to any main dish.
