Prep:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Wash the sweet potato and then prick the skin all over with a fork and then microwave on High for 5 minutes, turning halfway. Check to see if cooked through by piercing it with a fork, it is ready when tender.
  2. Drain the tin of tuna and decant into a mixing bowl. Roughly grate the courgette/baby marrow and add to the tuna. Add the finely chopped spring onion or finely diced red onion and some finely chopped red chilli (or a pinch of dried chilli flakes). Add a squeeze of lemon and then season with some salt and pepper.
  3. Cut the cooked sweet potato in half lengthways and slightly break up the flesh with a fork. Top with tuna and a massive dollop of fat free plain yoghurt. Finish with a final crack of black pepper and serve.
