    Nuking sweet potato.....

    Primal Fuel
    Anyone tried microwaving a sweet potato like getting a jacket potato? Good idea / bad idea?
    Just thought it could be a quick easy way of upping my carbs without a massive lunch whilst in work.

    It works brilliantly. Pretty much how I bake my sweet potatoes whilst frying steak, every time.

    Yes I use half power for twice as long and they cook beautifully.

    Pretty sure Microwaves cook from the inside & destroy all the nutrients.

    Nothing beats super slow baked swt potato wrapped in foil & the collection of the syrup at the bottom which you lick off is incredible !!!!!!

    Thankyou for the replies. I will give it a go tomorrow. Just wanted to check it would work like ordinary potato! Cheers all.

    I stab mine all over, nuke on high for 2:30, flip it over, nuke on high for 2:30. Slice in (carefully) to check the center and let cool if finished. If it's still a little hard in the middle (or it was a bigger one to begin with), I'll add :30 - 1:00 as needed.

    One of my favourites. I nuke it plenty so I can smash it and slather it in butter. Now I'm hungry. Damn.

    1. Yes, that's how they work.
    2. Excess water & extended cooking time will destroy nutrients. You don't need water to cook a sweet potato and the whole point of a microwave is usually to reduce time. Not really an issue.

    I primarily use the microwave for sweet potatoes. I am willing to risk some of the nutrient die off in favor of a quick, nutritious grab and go meal.
