Savory baked sweet potatoes are a welcome low-fat change from sweet potatoes baked the usual way in a buttery brown sugar glaze. These sweet potatoes are fragrant with garlic and rosemary.

1. Clean sweet potatoes under running water and pat dry. Make deep crosswise cuts about every inch, 2 to 3 cuts per potato, cut almost but not quite through, leaving potatoes intact. Insert several sprigs rosemary and a few slices garlic deep into cuts.

2. Place on baking sheet and spray potatoes with cooking spray. Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper. Bake at 375 degrees just until potatoes are tender and lightly browned, about 1 hour.

They should be the sweet, moist dark-skinned type with orange flesh, not the pale or yellow variety.
