Wash the sweet potato and then prick the skin all over with a fork, microwave on High for 5 minutes, turning halfway.

Check to see if cooked through by piercing it with a fork.

Drain the tin of tuna and decant into a mixing bowl, roughly grate the courgette/baby marrow and add to the tuna.

Add the finely chopped spring onion or finely diced red onion, add some finely chopped red chili (or a pinch of dried chili flakes)and a squeeze of lemon and then season with some salt and pepper.

Cut the cooked sweet potato in half lengthwise and slightly break up the flesh with a fork, top with tuna and a massive dollop of fat free plain yogurt.

Finish with a final crack of black pepper.
