This easy and healthy recipe present sweet potatoes in one of my favorite ways of preparing them – roasting. They come out sweet, but lightly salted, creamy on the inside with a chewy and slight crunch to the outside. They’re a great side dish and go down as easily and quickly as potato chips. Only better. Enjoy!
Roasted sweet potato wedges
4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray.
Slice each sweet potato in half lengthwise, then slice each half lengthwise into wedges – about 3 or 4 wedges per half. Place in large bowl. Drizzle olive oil over potatoes, then sprinkle salt and pepper. Toss everything together well.
Place wedges on baking pan, in a single layer. Roast in oven for about 30 – 40 minutes, until golden brown. You should flip all the wedges about half-way through the roasting process, to insure even cooking. Makes 4 servings.
