Turn a simple baked potato into a work of art! This is the easiest meal in the world to make and always immensely enjoyable, another of my go-to recipes when times are busy. Stick some washed sweet potatoes (or normal potatoes) in the oven, whip up a cashew hummus in your high-speed blender and prepare the salad. By the time the potatoes are cooked, you’re ready to eat a wonderful, nutritious meal. Too easy!
