Thanks to my friend, Liz, for finding, changing, and perfecting this recipe. My husband and all three of my kids love it, which means it is a dish we make quite a bit. When my family got sick over the holidays, she brought over a huge bowl of these, and my six-year old son ate almost the whole bowl. It took a couple of exposures for my four-year-old little girl to like them, but all of a sudden one day she decided to try them and said, "Can I have some more of those delicious sweet potatoes?!" It made me laugh :)
The best part is, they are really easy to make and don't require many ingredients.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
2 very large sweet potatoes (orange fleshed), cubed
About 2 tbsp. preferred cooking oil (I use grapeseed oil for these)
2 tablespoons paprika
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
Sprinkle of Real Salt and ground pepper
Put cubed sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, drizzle with oil, and use spatula to toss until potatoes are very lightly coated with oil. Sprinkle seasonings over the sweet potatoes, and toss until all are evenly coated witht the seasoning. Bake at 425 degrees for 50 minutes, making sure to flip with spatula at half-way cooking mark. They should be soft and a bit puffed up.
