Ingredients

  • 4 small sweet potatoes (about 200g each)
  • 185g can tuna in spring water, drained
  • ½ red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 small red chilli, deseeded and chopped
  • juice 1 lime

  • handful coriander leaves

Tip

Veggie alternative
To make a veggie version of these jackets, swap the tuna for some crumbled feta.

Method

  1. Scrub the sweet potatoes and prick all over with a fork. Place on a microwaveable plate and cook on High for 18-20 mins, or until tender. Split in half and place each one, cut-side up, on a serving plate.

  2. Flake the drained tuna with a fork and divide between the sweet potatoes. Top with the red onion and chilli, then squeeze over the lime juice. Top with a dollop of yogurt and scatter over the coriander, to serve.
