Servings 1 sweet potato
- 2 purple sweet potatoes Mine weighed about 4 ounces each.
- cooking oil spray I use olive oil.
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Rub the sweet potatoes with olive oil. I use this oil spray bottle from Amazon and spritz both sides and rub the oil in. Optional to sprinkle salt over the sweet potato. (You can also wrap the potatoes in foil if you wish).
Place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet. Bake for 60-90 minutes or until soft. Check if the sweet potatoes are finished by piercing it with a fork to ensure it's soft. Timing will vary based on the size of the potatoes you have.
Place a large pot of water on the stove on high heat. Ensure the sweet potatoes will fit in the size of the pot you are using. You may need to trim them down. Use enough water to completely submerge the sweet potatoes.
Boil for 30-40 minutes or until they are soft.
Optional: Place them in a bowl of cold water for 5-8 minutes to remove the skin easily.
