The Easiest, Most Delicious Roasted Sweet Potato Recipe

So recently I attended the Pennsylvania Farm Show and had one of the best sweet potatoes I’ve ever eaten. It was soft, and the texture was incredibly smooth. “I could eat this every day!” I thought….and I have almost ever since.

 

Turns out that sweet potatoes are a great post-workout recovery food! The amount of time it takes to prep the sweet potatoes frustrates me sometimes: washing the skin, peeling the potatoes, and cutting them into little cubes (from a 3-lb bag of potatoes) can be daunting when you don’t have much time on your hands.

 

However, I discovered this recipe and fell head-over-heels in love with it. It takes less than 10 minutes to prep, and as long as you’re okay with letting the potatoes roast in the oven while you watch television, then you’re good to go.

 

Here’s the recipe video and breakdown:

Recipe: Bomb Diggity Sweet Potato Fries

One of my favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes (other than my dee-lish sweet potato casserole) are sweet potato fries. Medallions, if you will. They are labor-intensive (ie. chopping up a sweet potato), but really healthy (no added crazy ingredients!) and worth it.

 

Sweet Potato Fries

Ingredients: (serves 3-4)

  • 3-4 whole, uncooked sweet potatoes
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt

 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Wash and peel skins off of sweet potatoes.
  • Cut sweet potatoes to about 1/4 inch width, making medallions.
  • place on foil-lined pan; massage 2-3 tbsp olive oil on each side of sweet potato piece.
  • Add salt (for the sweet-salty taste I adore) and cook for 30-40 minutes, checking every 10 minutes (and flipping 20 minutes in!)
  • ENJOY 🙂
"before"! (Mind the messy stove, by the way.) This is the amount made by 4 sweet potatoes cut

After!..I burned them a little. I had already scarfed down more than my fair share, but decided to take the picture anyway (shown with grilled pork chop and roasted cauliflower)
