    Serves: 2 

    • 2 large sweet potatoes
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr15min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Scrub and dry the sweet potatoes; prick several times with a fork and place onto a baking tray. Bake in preheated oven until the sweet potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, 50 minutes to 1 hour.
    2. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and red pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking and stirring until the onion is very tender and dark brown, 20 to 30 minutes more.
    3. Split open the baked sweet potatoes and top with the onion mixture, salt, pepper and a dollop of soured cream.

    Great dish! Spiced it up with some Tobasco. I think this will be especially good for cool weather.  -  24 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The onions and red bell peppers just do not taste right with sweet potatoes. Bake the potatoes and split with some non-fat butter substitute for a better taste.  -  24 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
