#FoodFriday: Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes + Lemon Mint Cucumber Water (recipes!)

(found here, via here)

Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes - obsessed with this easy and DELICIOUS dinner idea.


  • 2 medium red skinned sweet potatoes, about 8 to 10 oz each and scrubbed clean
  • 56g/ 2oz sheep’s milk feta cheese, cut into small cubes
  • 28g/ 2 oz black oil-cured olives, pitted and chopped
  • 25g/ 1 oz oil packed sundried tomatoes ; thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup (1 handful) chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried or 2 teaspoons fresh oregano; chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise down the center to expose cooked insides, top with feta mixture and serve.

And what's a good dinner without a refreshing drink? (non alcoholic this time, sorry guys)

Refreshing Lemon Mint Cucumber Water
Place a jar/bottle of water in the fridge overnight with a few slices of lemon, cucumber, and mint (in Israel, you can definitely use nana). Add sweetener (optional). 

Cheers to good weekend eating. xx
