Mini spuds are a great gluten-free and paleo side for lighter mains like salads or soups. Look for small sweet potatoes about the size of your fist, or cook two larger potatoes and serve half a potato to each person.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prick sweet potatoes liberally with a fork. Rub potatoes with oil. Place potatoes and 1/4 cup water in a microwave-safe baking dish; cover with plastic wrap. Microwave at HIGH 15 minutes or until tender, checking for doneness after 10 minutes. Cool slightly.

Step 2

Partially split potatoes in half lengthwise; fluff flesh with a fork. Sprinkle with salt. Top evenly with chives.
