Baked sweet potato

Bake and enjoy this seasonal vegetable as a healthy snack. Long time ago, I had eaten sweet potato cooked in pressure cooker. When I came to US, I saw baked sweet potato in one of the food programs on TV. I liked the baked texture and so I have been baking it since then. In addition to the garnish, you can use your favorite dips with it.
