Using sweet potatoes and lentils in this twist on comforting twice-baked potatoes adds both extra nutrients and fibre. Use an extra-old Cheddar cheese, or another aged sharp cheese, for the most flavour punch.
2 sweet potatoes, pricked with fork
2 Tbsp (30 mL) plain Greek yogurt or light sour cream
2 green onions, white and green parts separated, finely chopped
to taste, salt and pepper
1 cup (250 mL) cooked green lentils
2/3 cup (150 mL) finely grated extra-old Cheddar cheese
Quick Tip: Sweet potatoes come in all sizes and microwaves vary, so keep testing the potatoes each time you turn them, until they are fork tender.
