Ingredients

  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 x 500g sweet potatoes
  • 2 x 125 g can corn kernels, drained
  • 185 g tuna, drained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • ½ cup finely grated tasty cheese
  • mixed salad leaves, or steamed green vegetables, to serve

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C. Place the sweet potatoes onto an oven tray, and bake for 50-60 minutes, until tender (test with a pointed knife in the side). Remove from the oven, and when cool enough to handle, cut in half horizontally. Scoop out the flesh, leaving about 1 cm in the skin
  • Mash the sweet potato with a fork, and add the corn, tuna and parsley. Stir in the eggs, and season to taste. Place the sweet potato shells onto an oven tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Spoon the mixture into the sweet potato shells (if the shells are very soft, prop the sides with a little folded foil)
  • Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake for 25 minutes, until set and golden. Serve immediately, with salad or steamed green vegetables
