Course Side Dish
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 5 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 4 tbsp olive oil I used Garlic Infused Olive Oil
  • 50 ml milk dairy free or low FODMAP if needed
  • 50 g cheese and a little extra for grating on top dairy free if vegan or lactose free if low FODMAP
  • handful chives finely chopped, for garnish
  • 3 tbsp dried red chilli flakes for garnish
  • yoghurt dairy free if vegan or lactose free if low FODMAP


  1. Preheat your oven to 200C.

  2. Poke & prod each sweet potato a few times with a fork & place on a baking sheet. Bake in the middle of an oven for about 45-50 minutes, until cooked.

  3. Allow the sweet potatoes to cool enough to touch and slice each potato in half with a sharp knife.

  4. Scoop out the soft sweet potato flesh and place in a separate bowl, but leave a slim layer of flesh within to support the skins.

  5. Place the empty skins back on the baking sheet, drizzle with a little garlic-infused olive oil & bake for another 10 minutes (this time at an oven temp of 180C)

  6. To your sweet potato flesh bowl, add milk, cheese, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and then mash together to make it as smooth as you would like! 

  7. Remove your sweet potato skins from the oven and fill each one with your mashed mixture.

  8. Cover your sweet potatoes with even more cheese, a couple of different colour cheeses can make it look even better.. put as much as you like on!

  9. Bake for another 10 minutes until the cheese has melted.

  10. Remove from the oven & top with some dried chilli flakes and freshly chopped chives.

  11. Serve up with my low FODMAP guacamole and a little yoghurt and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

A serving size of 75g of sweet potato is considered a safe portion size during the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet.
