Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I think I have finally perfected my roasted sweet potato recipe!

I loooove love sweet potatoes, so getting this recipe down right was CRUCIAL.

They’re savory and crispy on the outside and sweet and tender on the inside.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

How To:

  1. Preheat oven to 450F (mine takes about 15 minutes…I need to buy a thermometer)
  2. Peel (or scrub really really well) sweet potatoes
  3. Slice into half inch slices
  4. Cut slices into fourths (so they come out like little triangles, pictured)
  5.  Place in a bowl of water (room temperature/cold) for 30 minutes
  6. Drain water and pat dry
  7. Line a tray with parchment paper
  8. Spread sweet potatoes out on the tray (leaving some room to breath)
  9. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper
  10. Toss with hands until evenly coated
  11. Bake on top rack for 20 – 25 minutes (don’t touch them!)
  12. Viola!
