When it comes to a satisfying meal, it is hard to beat a hearty jacket potato recipe. You can keep it healthy with a vegan or vegetarian option that is not overloaded with cheese or butter.
Some of my favourite fillings include beans and lentils mixed with seasonal vegetables laced in a rich and creamy sauce.
For extra nutrients, choose a sweet potato. Its orange flesh is loaded with beta-carotene as well as vitamin B6, calcium and magnesium. It also has a low GI and tons of dietary fibres. Kids also generally enjoy its sweet taste.
Jacket potato recipes are so versatile you can use a wide range of spices and herbs. They make an easy and thrifty lunch or dinner that the whole family can enjoy together.
