As delicious as baked potatoes and sour cream – but without the guilt. Sweet potatoes are a better carb choice and the onions add a sweet flavour!

1. Preheat the oven to 180 ˚C.
2. Mix oil, lemon juice, water, ginger, chilli and garlic in a large bowl. Add onions and sweet potatoes and toss to coat the veggies. Season with pepper.
3. Place in an oven dish, with all the liquid and seasonings. Roast for 45 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft.
4. Stir onions with the pan juices into the cottage cheese. Cut a deep slit into each sweet potato and fill with about 2 tbsp (30 ml) of the mixture. Garnish with fresh coriander.
Serve with grilled or roasted fish, chicken or pork and fill your plate with any green veggies, lightly cooked and seasoned with lemon juice and black pepper. A green salad will also be delicious.

Tips:
1. To make wedges: Cut sweet potatoes into wedges and coat in oil mixture as below. Roast for just 30 minutes and serve with the sauce as a dip.
2. Add fresh grated lemon rind to the cottage cheese for more flavour.
