Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite fall foods in North Carolina! Many of you may know them best from your grandmothers casserole but there are many inexpensive ways to incorporate sweet potatoes into your meals without added sugar and much prep time at all! I eat these as a side often but when I am looking to mix it up I sometimes add these to my soups, tacos, burritos and my salads.

Start by preheating your oven to 375 then begin rinsing and peeling your 3 Sweet potatoes, then cube your potatoes and place them in a mixing bowl. Next add to your mixing bowl:

  • 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon of melted Coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoons of Parsley
  • 1 Teaspoon of Thyme
  • 1.5 Teaspoons of Black Pepper 
  • 1 Pinch of Onion powder
  • 2 cloves of minced Garlic 
  • 1 Pinch of Basil 
  • 1 Teaspoon of Sea Salt (Optional)

Bake for 30 minutes and enjoy!


One thought on “Roasted Sweet Potatoes

  1. Sweet potatoes are my all time favorite. You hit the nail on the head because when I think about where that love began was when I ate my grandma’s sweet potato casserole for the first time. It is interesting though that the ingredients to bake the sweet potatoes with includes salty ingredients. I would have expected more sweet ingredients such as cinnamon and brown sugar. You also need to try them with roasted marshmallows on top.
