Simple roasted sweet potato recipe with loads of wiggle room to make just the way you like it.

Ingredients

  • 3 small-to-medium sweet potatoes or 2 large ones
  • 3 TBS olive oil
  • 1/2 tbs curry powder (or adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (or adjust to taste)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Peel and cut sweet potatoes into roughly 1/2 inch cubes.
  3. Transfer to rimmed baking sheet and drizzle generously with olive oil. Gently toss sweet potatoes in pan until coated with olive oil.
  4. Sprinkle generously with curry powder to taste. Alternately, try any combination of garlic powder, onion powder, cumin… or go sweet with cinnamon & a dash of nutmeg!
  5. Sprinkle sea salt to taste (this is my favorite kind).
  6. Bake on center rack for 20-24 minutes. Stir sweet potatoes halfway to ensure they don’t get stuck to the pan–because that would be sad.
