Simple Roasted Sweet Potatoes


Sweet potatoes are by far one of my favorite ingredients to roast! At one point in time, I was roasting them twice a week. I love how versatile they are and can be tossed in a salad or bowl, or served as a side. 


I’ve roasted sweet potatoes with their skin on and off and love the added bite you get with the skin on. Plus you get all those extra nutrients! Sometimes I don’t pick up the best sweet potatoes and I have to peel the skin, don’t fret because they’re just as tasty.

Don’t be afraid to play around with spices either! Find what you like and what works best for your taste buds. You really can’t go wrong, just sprinkle on your favorites!

  1. I love roasted sweet potato! This looks delicious! Here in New Zealand we don’t often call them sweet potatoes (although everyone knows they are also called that). We call them Kumara. In case you’d like to know.

  2. I’m with you- I LOVE roasted sweet potatoes! Some of my favorite salads are made with sweet potatoes, and they make the perfect side to some grilled chicken and veggies. My favorite way to season is with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and thyme- YUM!
