Pre heat oven to 200c

4 Medium sized kumara (aka sweet potato) Baked

 1. Ingredients... (plus 4 baked sweet potato's)

 2. Ingredients Prepped

 3. Half your sweet potatoes and then with a small spoon, scoop out the kumara apart from a thin line around the edges. (be careful you don't want to tear the bottoms) Add the scooped kumara to your bowl of ingredients and smash together. 

4. Dived the bowl of ingredients into 8 parts and stuff all your sweet potatoes evenly. Pack them firmly. Place them on a greased oven tray and bake for around 20 minutes.

These are fantastic. Great for kids, entree's, take them to a bbq etc...
I topped mine with organic bbq sauce and my home made coconut yogurt.
