1.Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with foil.
2.Scrub kumara and pierce all over with a fork. Wrap in plastic wrap; cook in a microwave oven on HIGH (100%) for about 8 minutes or until tender. Cool 5 minutes, then unwrap.
3.Cut a 2cm-deep incision, lengthways from one end of the kumara to the other. Using a tea towel, gently squeeze the base of the kumara to open the top. Scoop two thirds of flesh into a small bowl. Repeat with remaining kumara.

5.Bake stuffed kumara about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with remaining chives.
