Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Outside of being packed with an amazing savory and sweet flavor, sweet potatoes are packed with all sorts of nutritional benefits like fiber, iron, and calcium, as well as vitamins B and C. In addition, they are a great source of beta-carotene, which is a powerful antioxidant. There are multiple ways to cook up these vegetables, too, so make sure to check out my sweet potato casserole, too!

How to Make Roasted Sweet Potatoes

There is no need to wait for the holidays to make this side dish. In fact, when I saw how easy and tasty this recipe was, I added it to my weeknight menu. To make the potatoes, first, wash, peel, and cut the potatoes into about 1/2 inch cubes. You will get about 4 cups worth of cubed potatoes.

Next, in a large bowl, mix together the potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Toss until the potatoes are coated. In a single, even layer, arrange the potatoes on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake at 450°F for 30 minutes, flipping the potatoes after about 15 minutes. Finally, broil the potatoes for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until crispy. Serve the roasted sweet potatoes immediately.

    I had bought 2 large sweet potatoes for a different more elaborate recipe but after a few days forgot what it was and couldn’t find the recipe. I was in need of a quick side dish for a weeknight dinner and I came across this. This was PERFECT, SIMPLE, and DELICIOUS! Great side dish when youre in a pinch. It paired nicely with my baked rustic rosemary bone-in chicken thighs. Umm Um

  2. Your menus are quite interesting. They all look amazing and I will be trying out quite a few. As a matter of fact I will try the Roasted sweet potatoes today.
