Smoky, spicy roasted sweet potatoes 

Roasted sweet potatoes are a dinner staple around here.

Often, we wrap them in foil and roast them whole, but sometimes I like to mix things up a bit.

These are tossed with olive oil and generously spiced. The smoky, hot flavor is addictive- watch out or you may eat the entire pan!

4 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt or smoked sea salt


1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and spray a large casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray, or line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick spray.

2. In a large bowl, drizzle the sweet potatoes with olive oil and stir to coat. Dump in the spices and stir to coat evenly.

3. Spread the sweet potatoes evenly in the casserole dish and bake for 25 minutes, stirring half way through.
