The peckish girl:
Serves: 4
  • Oil for cooking
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 500g minced beef
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup chopped button mushrooms
  • 1 red pepper (capsicum), diced
  • 1 green pepper (capsicum), diced
  • Optional - red chilli
  • 1 kg sweet potatoes
  1. Wash the potatoes. Wrap them individually to aluminium foil and place them on a baking tray. Place the tray in preheated oven on 200 °C and bake for 30 minutes. Depending how big the potatoes are, I used small ones. You can try them with a fork, if it goes easily through, they are cooked.
  2. Let the potatoes cool completely before continuing. Once cooled, unwrapped them from the foil and cut each in a half. With a spoon scoop out the flesh out of the potatoes, so you are left with the skins with thin layer of the flesh. Keep the flesh for later (for purees, baking etc.)
  3. Place the potato skins back on the baking tray with the skin up. Place the tray in the oven for 10 more minutes, so the skins crisp and firms up.
  4. In the meanwhile, make the meat filling. Place a frying pan over high heat and add the cooking oil. Let it warm up and add the onion and minced beef. Season the meat with salt pepper and the spices and cook until completely done.
  5. Once the meat is ready transfer it in a bowl and use the same pan to fry the peppers and mushrooms on a spoon of cooking oil.
  6. Mix the mushrooms and peppers with the meat and fill the potato skins with the mixture.
  7. Garnish the potato skins with some fresh chopped coriander.
  8. Tip: If you eat dairy you can grate some cheese on top of each potato and melt it in the oven for few more minutes before sprinkling with the herbs.
