How to bake Potatoes? Try these 3 healthy combos October 30, 2015
Cheese, bacon, sour cream… It doesn’t read like a laundry list of detoxers. To learn how to bake potatoes with a healthy twist, check out these three delicious combinations!
You can whip up any or all of these crowd-pleasing numbers really easily – why not bake all the potatoes together and then get a friend or two on each different variation? We love them as a special lunch treat, or even on a lazy Saturday when you can’t be bothered with a complicated dinner.
In the lineup today, we have refreshing tuna and dill with sweet potato, a very moreish haloumi and Harissa paste number for those who like a bit of fire, and a baked egg number with cheese and chives which would make a delectable brunch option.
- Bake all the 3 potatoes in the oven at 200°C for 40 minutes to an hour, until the skin is crispy.
- Strain the tuna from can.
- Mix the Tuna with 2 tbsp yoghurt and some thinly chopped dill.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Cut down the centre of the sweet potato and Add this tuna mix to the centre of the sweet potato.
- Squeeze on some lemon juice.
- Sprinkle on some pumpkin seeds, chopped dill and pepper.
- Cut the potato in half.
- Remove enough of the potato to leave a space for an egg.
- Break the egg into the potato.
- Chop chives & spring onions and sprinkle on top.
- Sprinkle some cheese on top.
- Bake for another 5 – 10 minutes (until the egg is cooked).
- Slice & fry haloumi.
- Cut the flat parsley very thinly to make a small salad.
- Cut the potato down the centre and add the chopped parsley, sprinkle on some olive oil and add salt and pepper.
- Add the haloumi slices on top.
- Mix some plain yoghurt with a tsp of Harissa paste and spoon on top of the haloumi.
- Sprinkle on some pomegranate seeds and a bit more olive oil – grind some black pepper on top.
Once you’ve mastered these flavour combinations, why not try mixing up your favourite concoctions? I have a strange notion that ricotta and currants would make a delicious savoury/sweet combination, but have I gone too far? Let us know in the comments.
