Sweet Potato Bake

This is one of Dan Churchill's favourites – nourishing comfort food that provides amazing slow-releasing energy.


  • 2 tbsp olive or macadamia oil
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into 1/2cm thick discs
  • 200g ricotta
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 3 lean bacon rashes, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • A pinch of a salt


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. On a high heat, add the oil to a roasting tray and cook the sweet potato for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown, agitating the pan every so often to get colour all over. Remove potato and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, cook the bacon for 2-3 minutes or until golden.
  4. Combine the ricotta, nutmeg and coconut milk in a bowl. 
  5. Add the sweet potato back into the pan then give it a quick stir to mix it through before adding in the coconut milk mix. 
  6. Finish with a sprinkling of salt and cook for 20-25 mins in the oven.
