Often I use my Instant just because it is convenient, not because it is faster. I can throw these in and leave the house. When I return home hours later worn out and packing a hungry grandchild, lunch is ready and warm.
- 2-3 large sweet potatoes
- 1/2 cup water
- Tad of extra virgin olive oil
Each large sweet potato is about 165 calories (without toppings)
Scrub potatoes, coat very lightly with olive oil, wrap in aluminum foil. Pour 1/2 cup of water in pot, add provided trivet, set potatoes on top. Add lid, press steam button and set time to 15 minutes.
Remove foil, cut slit in top of sweet potatoe and enjoy. If you like a topping, add a little of one or two of your healthier favorites: walnuts, ground flax seeds, Greek yogurt, low fat cream cheese, etc. If a child is eating, 3-4 miniature marshmallows on a warm sweet potatoe go over big.
BTW: Since they have aluminum foil, they store well on a plate in the refrigerator to serve in later meals.
