Oven Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges

Sweet potatoes are great for many reasons: they’re healthy, extremely versatile, and can be eaten as a dessert, or a savory dinner.

My favorite way to eat sweet potatoes is roasted in the oven in wedges.  You can season to your liking, but this is a basic “recipe” that I follow for crispy, mouth-watering potatoes.

Start by washing a large sweet potato.

And preheat your oven to 375 F.

Peel the skin with a vegetable peeler. IMG_4974.JPG

Once the potato is peeled, cut it in half, and then in half again, like this:

Sweet potatoes tend to be very tough to cut, so you’ll want to carefully use a sharp knife.  Once you’ve cut the potato into quarters, cut each piece into smaller, bite-size pieces. IMG_4977.JPG

Place the potatoes in a small baking pan, and drizzle with olive oil. IMG_4979.JPG

Then a dash or two of salt and pepper. IMG_4981.JPG

And lastly, sprinkle some garlic salt on top.  Stir the potatoes well so that they’re evenly coated. IMG_4982.JPG

Once the oven is preheated, cook for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring every 10 minutes or so.The potatoes are done when they’re tender and very slightly browned.

A delicious way to enjoy them is topped with Garlic & Tahini sauce (recipe here https://cheatsheethomemaker.wordpress.com/2016/12/30/tahini-garlic-dressing-with-lemon-essential-oil/ ) with pieces of brocoli! img_4985
