The Bicep Buster
Time to get those guns on show! This protein-packed baked potato is an absolute protein star – and awesomely tasty to boot! Love it.
- 1 large potato
- ½ can black beans (drained and rinsed; 15oz = 435g)
- ½ cup brown lentils, cooked
- ¼ cup cottage cheese
Microwave the large potato for nine minutes. A medium potato needs seven minutes and a small potato needs five minutes. To add extra potatoes allow an extra four minutes for a large potato, three minutes for a medium potato and two minutes for a small potato. This is using a 1000w microwave – adjust for slightly longer or shorter if yours is a higher or lower power. Don't forget to pierce the potatoes with a fork a few times.
Heat up the beans and lentils.
When ready, slice a deep groove through the middle of the potato in both directions. Repeat the process diagonally.
Add optional butter, salt and pepper to the potato.
Pour the hot beans and lentils over the potato when ready.
Add the cottage cheese on top.
