Wash sweet potato (200 g) thoroughly. Pat dry then pierce with a fork about 3-4 times. Wrap potato in a damp paper towel and place potato on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave for 5 minutes. If the potato is not yet fork-tender, keep microwaving in 30-second increments. Once tender, cut the sweet potato in half. Spoon out the sweet potato from the skin.
