How to make baked potatoes in the microwave

Rinse the potatoes and leave the skins on. Cut a deep cross into the potatoes and season with salt. Place the potatoes on a microwave safe plate and cook in the microwave for 6 minutes. Check if the potatoes are soft and cooked through. If they’re still a little hard, cook them in the microwave for 1 more minute and repeat until cooked.

Sauce or dressing

I like to top my baked potatoes with a fresh coconut yogurt dressing that compliments the savory vegetables and cools the hot potatoes. But you can substitute with any type of gravy, dressing or sauce that you want. Anything goes.
