Steamed Sweet Potato

(serves 2)
2 sweet potatoes (not the type with purple skin)

    Nowadays my wife and I prefer to have simple meals. If we had to spend a lot of time and effort preparing elaborate meals after work EVERYDAY, we would probably cease cooking FOREVER and eat at our neighbourhood coffeeshop instead :P

   Quite a number of our meals consist of just salads, sweet potatoes and corn cobs. The photo below shows what we ate for dinner tonight (my wife's plate was the same as mine). The chestnuts were steamed together with the sweet potatoes for convenience's sake, to heat them up rather to cook them, since they can be eaten raw. The vegetable in the photo is 小白菜, which was boiled separately for less than 5 mins over a gas stove. 

   If you are using the longer and thinner sweet potatoes with purple skin, you only need to steam them for 15 mins.

  1. Cut each sweet potato into half and rinse them in water. No need to peel.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes on a plate and into the Healsio oven.
  3. Use STEAM mode for 30 mins.
  4. Serve.
Notes:- Power Consumption (w/o draining): 1.2 kWh
