Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes with Wensleydale and Chives

I love comfort food, and as the weather grows colder, my yearning for all things baked and roasted grows stronger.

Serves 3  3 sweet potatoes 150g wensleydale cheese Large handful fresh chives Salt and pepper to season 1 tbsp grated pecorino or parmesan (optional) Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 6 (conversions here) Prick your sweet potatoes with a fork, a few holes each side will do.

I don’t blame the recipe I used one bit, but my lack of experience with any flour that isn’t labelled “plain” or “self-raising”, I’m a work in progress. Bear with me. If you’re a spelt genius, go ahead and make your own, if you’re not and you’re kinda in a hurry, just buy some. Same goes for the salsa. This can be a labour of love or a pretty snappy meal depending on how much work you feel like doing. Serves 3-4 6-8 …
