This is a simple post and one that I didn’t really plan on posting. I don’t really think about posting easy vegetable side dishes. I did however have some emails, so I will be obliging.

I use sweet potatoes in many different ways… Apple sweet potatoes (which I will post at a later time), Cinnamon Sweet Potato Frosting, Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting and other recipes I am playing with and by roasting them.

Easy Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Roasting is super easy way to be able to enjoy them whether you are cooking them in the oven or on the barbecue.

2 medium sweet potatoes

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. my spice mix or herbs of your choice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Wash sweet potatoes. I leave the peel on, but you can remove if you would like. Chop into one inch pieces. (You can cut them into bigger pieces but the smaller ones seem to caramelize better)

Toss potatoes and olive oil into a bowl and stir so that the potatoes are evenly coated in oil.

Put into parchment paper lined baking dish. (Believe me, you want the parchment paper. If not the caramelizing causes the potatoes to stick to the bottom of the pan)

Sprinkle on spices. Cook uncovered for 35-40 minutes, stirring twice through the cooking process.

Makes four servings.

**If barbecuing, cook on low heat, stirring more frequently, approximately same time. Test doneness with a fork.

Makes four servings.

  1. I like this. I have never really known what to do with sweet potatoes other than boil them and mash them into ordinary potatoes to give some extra texture and flavour. I’l have a go at this over the weekend and I will certainly have a go at the Blueberry Scones. Oh, and yes, I do a fair bit of the cooking at home – I like cooking and find it enjoyable. However my wife says I am a typical male cook – never use one pan when you can use two :o)

  2. These look yummy! My husband is trying to cut out a lot of starch in his diet for a while, so I think we’ll be eating more sweet potatoes. Do you ever roast them with onion? I think that would be yummy!

  3. YUM, the perfect side dish for any meal! Thanks for linking up at our Gluten Free Fridays party! I have tweeted and pinned your entry to our Gluten Free Fridays board on Pinterest! 🙂
