Savory Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Originally posted 2/2/18

Ingredients (Yield: 2 servings)

1 large sweet potato

2-3 tablespoons of vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of black pepper

1/2 teaspoon of paprika

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

2-3 shakes of cayenne, or to taste


Step 0.5: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 1: Slice your sweet potato into bite sized cubes.

Step 2: Place your sweet potatoes into a bowl with all of the other ingredients on the list, and stir to coat the potatoes evenly in the oil and spices.

Step 3: Lay the sweet potatoes out on a lined baking sheet in a single layer.

Step 4: Bake the sweet potatoes for 25-35 minutes, or until they are tender with browning edges.

Step 5: Cool slightly and serve hot! With this recipe, I love to make sweet potato “bowls” for dinner with spinach, feta, craisins, walnuts, and crumbled black bean burgers.
