Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Prick sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Place on paper towel. Microwave on HIGH until tender when pierced, about 5 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

Cut potatoes into wedges; place skin side up in 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish. Brush wedges with oil; sprinkle with salt.

Bake in centre of oven until slightly crisp, about 10 minutes. Cover with cheese; bake until melted, about 8 minutes.

Serve dolloped with yogurt and sprinkled with green onions.
