Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Simple roasted sweet potatoes are made with a little oil, sea salt and pepper. They're a touch crispy on the outside while soft and pillowy on the inside. They make for a quick and easy side that you can pair with just about any main dish.
Servings: 3 servings
- 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled and chopped into even chunks
- 1 - 2 Tablespoons avocado or olive oil
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
- optional seasonings: cinnamon chili powder, cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 400°F. Chop sweet potatoes into medium-sized chunks. Not too small, but not too big either. Try to make them around the same size so that they are all done cooking at the same time.
Place sweet potatoes, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl and toss to combine. Pour onto a baking sheet and cook for 30-45 minutes, until fork tender, tossing once half-way through. Remove from oven, taste and season with additional salt if needed. Serve warm or store leftovers in the fridge for up to 1 week.
