Low calory and healthy take on the classic heavy butter, sour cream or cheese filled baked potato. And it is so easy to make! I use a sweet potato as it is loaded with great nutrients and I top it with cottage cheese, which is naturally low in calories and fat. This guilt-free edition of the classic side dish is full of flavour. I like mine with a simple lemon zest-parsley topping, but you can use a variety of healthy garnishes, such as finely diced bell pepper, scallions, onions, tomato or olives. Delicious and good for you, so indulge!
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Wrap potato tightly in tin foil and poke a few holes. Place on baking tray in oven and bake for 60 minutes.
- Remove from oven. Cut open and top with cottage cheese, lemon zest and chopped parsley. Season with pepper and salt to taste.
