chocolate tarts (at least we could eat what didn't stick to the oven and tray). I was going to tell you all about it today but I don't have the energy. Instead here is a simple lunch I made while working from home last week (it is my most complete blog draft, after all).
Kalyn, and popped it back in the oven and returned to the computer. The oven warmed the house and I barely had to stop working to prepare it.

Smoky lime peanut baked sweet potatoes
Inspired by Kalyn's Kitchen
1 medium sweet potato
1-2 tsp lime juice
1/4 tsp smoked salt
3/4 tsp sauce from chipotle in adobo
1/4 tsp garlic powder (or fresh garlic)
1 tsp finely chopped parsley
1 dessertspoon of yoghurt
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 spring onion (I didn't use but would have if I had one)
Pierce sweet potato with a fork a few times. Bake on an oven tray until soft all the way through - it took me 1 and 3/4 hours at 180 C but it might be quicker in other people's ovens as mine is slow.
When sweet potatoes are baked, cut in half, longways, and scoop out the flesh with a spoon, leaving a thin layer of flesh around the skin to create boats. Mash the sweet potato and mix with remaining ingredients, adjusting flavours according to taste.
Spoon the filling back into the sweet potato boats. Bake for 30 minutes until the top is dried out and a little crisp.

oh no!! sorry about your car! that is NO fun! your potatoes look delicious! i bet that flavor combo is outrageous!ReplyDelete
Thanks Gf happy tummy - no it isn't fun to hang around in the cold when a car is being fixed - felt sorry for the guy fixing it who was outside even more than meDelete
I love your version! Sorry you had such a thoroughly crummy day. Hope things are improving.ReplyDelete
Thanks Kalyn - have had that post of yours bookmarked for ages - knew it would come in handy - life is better todayDelete
Oh no, such days are the worst! :( The baked potato looks wonderful though - I love the colors and your idea to serve the potato mash in the skin.ReplyDelete
Thanks Kath - thank goodness every day isn't like that - now that you mention it, it might make a great mash to have as a side dishDelete
sorry to hear about the lens :(ReplyDelete
Thanks Lisa - I couldn't believe it when I saw the camera - thankfully the lens is now replacedDelete
Oh dear, that does not sound like a good day at all. I'm sorry to her about the lens, and the car, and the tarts! I hope today and tomorrow are improved, even if the house doesn't magically clean itself and Sylvia is up past her bed time.ReplyDelete
On more positive matters, these stuffed sweet potatoes look absolutely perfect for my current tastes, desire for warm foods, and sweet potato enjoyment. The fact they are easy to prepare is a bonus - thank you for the inspiration. They are likely to appear soon!
Thanks Kari - the sweet potatoes are really easy if you have the time - which I don't usually have but it is one of the luxuries of working from home! Life generally is better - couldn't cope with many of these bad days too often - but sylvia still took a while to sleep tonight - some things are predictable!Delete
Gosh what a nightmare of a day. Glad you had the lunch from last week to brighten up your day. It sounds truly scrummy especially with the chipotle, smoked salt, spring onion and peanut butter.There's a Jamie Oliver that I've tried which is baked sweet potato with lime and coriander and it scores high on the flavour ratings too :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks Jacqueline - I found a few similar recipes online - sweet potatoes seem to invite interesting flavours and pair well with lime! (I don't often use peanut butter in cooking these days because my daughter is allergic but felt I could use it while she wasn't about - because sweet potato and peanut butter also is a classic combination)Delete
Aww sounds majorly traumatic!! At least that means today HAS to be better? These sweet potatoes sound absolutely divine and like something I need in my life.ReplyDelete
Thanks Joanne - yes today is better - it would have had to have been horrendous to top all that :-) And I am sure you would love those sweet potatoesDelete
Oh dear, some days things go from bad to worse don't they?!ReplyDelete
Love sweet potatoes and the chipotle sounds like a nice touch.
I've given you a blog award - hopefully it will cheer you up.
Please visit my blog for details.
Thanks Katie - blog awards always cheer me up - the chipotle gives a nice depth of flavour - I kept adding it till it was spicy enough - but I know there are some who prefer far more heat than meDelete
Oh, I'm sorry to hear about your horror day! Here's hoping the rest of the week was the smoothest sailing possible...ReplyDelete
What a crap day! At least you followed it by something excitingly delicious... these looks great Johanna. I am inspired!ReplyDelete
