SWEET POTATO WITH FETA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ingredients

4 smallish sweet potatoes
Olive oil or Greek salad dressing (Kraft Greek Feta and Oregano)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 cup Kalamata olives, sliced
2 Tbsp cilantro (optional)
4 oz crumbled feta cheese
1 red chili pepper chopped or to your taste
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp minced garlic

Method
Cut the sweet potatoes in half and place cut side down on a foil lined baking sheet. Prick them a couple of times. Lightly oil them and season well. Roast in a 375 degree F oven till tender – about 40 mins.  Meanwhile combine olives and cilantro in a small bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl combine feta, red chili pepper, cumin and garlic. Once the sweet potatoes are cooked spoon in a portion of feta mix and top with olive and cilantro.  Drizzle a little oil or salad dressing on top.

I usually cook my potatoes in the microwave to save time – a little water in the bottom of a microwave casserole dish; place sweet potato halves cut side down and microwave on HIGH 7-10 minutes.
