Recipe: Baked sweet potato with feta, olives and sundried tomatoes

I only discovered my love for sweet potatoes after I moved to US. But last year it became sort of an obsession. I collect almost all sweet potato recipes I come across on Pinterest and (if they are easy enough) I try making it at home.

This one is definitely on my top 5! So many flavors and so easy to make! To make it even easier, I don't bake the potatoes on the conventional oven, instead I just microwave them for 5-7 minutes, depending on their size, and it's done! Here it goes:

Baked Sweet Potatoes Stuffed with Feta, Olives and Sundried Tomatoes (from Gourmande in the Kitchen)

2 medium red skinned sweet potatoes
2 oz feta cheese cut into small cubes
2 oz black olives pitted and chopped
1 oz oil packed sundried tomatoes thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400F. Pierce each sweet potato several times with the tines of a fork. Place them directly on middle oven rack with a piece of foil on the rack below.
Bake until the sweet potatoes are easily pierced with a knife and cooked through, about 45-60 minutes depending on size. Remove from oven and let stand until cool enough to handle.
While the sweet potatoes are baking, make the topping. Mix together remaining ingredients in a small bowl and set aside until the sweet potatoes are done.
Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise down the center to expose cooked insides, top with feta mixture and serve.

Do you have any favorite sweet potato recipe? I'd love if you shared it with me! :)
