Sweet potato, how do i cook?

Whats the best thing to do with sweet potato, i have a rather large to eat tonight, not entirely sure how to cook them, last time i cut into wedges coated them in olive oil and baked them. They where ok but overcooked them a bit and ruined them. Shall i do them again like this or cook them as you would a normal baked spud? Or any other way?
Cheers

    You can simply baked them whole like other potatoes, or cook them like you did: 25 min is enough...

    Boil then mash them with garlic, fresh coriander and a drizzle of olive oil.

    Cut into chunks along with courgette, peppers, onions, tomatoes, aubergine.
    Drizzle over olive oil and season with paprika, cumin & coriander & garlic (salt if using).
    Roast in the oven for about 30 - 40 mins on medium heat....until veg is soft.
    Stir around a couple of times whilst cooking to recoat with oil and seasoning.

    Cut into 1 cm cubes.
    Heat olive oil in a large pan or wok.
    Add sweet potatoes and brown off moving all the time around the pan or they will burn.
    Add seasoning of choice
    When browned off add some water and wet fry until cooked but still firm and water has evaporated.
    Add 6 egg whites & 1 whole egg and stir round.
    Top meal.

    The above can be done adding lean mince.

    I just stab em with a knife a few times and sling them in the microwave. Sainsbury's ones cook quicker than Waitrose - dunno why, only need 6 - 8 mins to cook em, faster than white potatoes. I also baked em as well but takes much longer.

    I find em easy to kill in the microwave.
