Tropical Baked Kumara
Serves: 4

You know baked stuffed potatoes – now here’s a tropical version, using kumaras, pineapple and corned beef.!


  • 4 med-size orange or golden kumara
  • dash of oil
  • ½ cup well drained crushed pineapple
  • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 2-3 spring onions
  • 340g can Hellaby's Corned Beef
  • ¼-½ cup grated cheese


1. Wash the kumara and dry well. Trim the ends. Rub the kumara with oil and place on a baking tray. Cook at 200°C for 45-50 minutes or until well cooked. Alternatively prick the kumara with a fork and microwave on high power for 15 minutes or until tender.

2. Slice a top off each kumara and scoop the flesh into a bowl.

3. Add the pineapple, ginger, spring onions and Hellaby's Corned Beef and mix gently with a fork to break up the corned beef and mix the ingredients lightly. Do not mash.

4. Re-fill each kumara with 1/4 of the mixture and return or place on the baking tray. Sprinkle each with a little grated cheese.

5. Cook at 200°C for 15 minutes until piping hot and golden.
