Short on time? Simply ravenous? Just can’t wait another 5 minutes until you have a bite of fluffy sweetpotato in your mouth? Don’t worry, friends. Pop that spud into the microwave and your sweetpotato craving will be satiated in a matter of minutes!

Microwaving a sweetpotato is quite possibly the quickest and easiest way to cook your sweetpotato. Without wasting precious time to preheat and bake, you’ll still achieve the sweet, caramelization that an oven-baked sweetpotato is known for. Not sure when your microwaved sweetpotato is ready? The sweetpotato’s thin skin puffs to a crisp finish and inside you’ll discover a sweet, pillowy flesh.

How to Microwave a Sweetpotato:
  • Pierce the sweetpotato skin 5-6 times.
  • Place on a microwaveable plate and microwave for 5-8 minutes, rotating halfway through.
