Cut potato in half and scoop out inside leaving about ½ inch (2.5 cm) border around inside. Mash the scooped out potato with yogurt. Stir in beans, carrots and cheese until well combined.

Step 3
Put filling back into potato halves before eating.


You can substitute your favourite cooked meat like chopped chicken or ground beef for the beans to enjoy in your potato.
