  • Effort: easy



  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, cut in half lengthways
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 40 g butter
  • 1 tbsp jerk seasoning
  • 1 limes, cut into wedges
  • 5 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 1 small bunch of coriander, chopped


1. Set the oven to 200C/gas 6. 2. Using a sharp knife, score the cut side of each potato half in a lattice pattern, taking care not to cut right through to the skin. 3. Rub each half with olive oil and bake in the oven, lattice side up, for approximately 40 minutes until nearly cooked. 4. In the meantime, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the jerk seasoning and gently fry for one minute. When the potatoes are nearly cooked, spoon the jerk butter over the latticed flesh of each potato and return to the oven for 10 minutes until golden and cooked. 5. To serve, squeeze over a little lime juice, serve with a dollop of yoghurt and scatter with freshly chopped coriander.
