followed method for easy roast sweet potato but think 220c is too high. The onion tips burnt and the garlic had to be removed as it burnt. a lower temp would be better-14 Jan 2017

Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes Haiku: "Yay, no marshmallows! Savory sweet potatoes, glad that I found you!" Super easy recipe and delicious; I left mine in longer, stirring frequently enough that the sweet potatoes browned evenly, but my onions were a little burnt and shrivel-y, which is my bad b/c I didn't cut them into wedges, as directed. I did follow the recipe, other than apparently being a little too dainty w/ my onion cuts. Wow, these were terrific, and how nice that they weren't bathed in brown sugar or some other sticky sweetness. I squashed some of the leftovers (sans onions) for the baby, and she said "gurgle blurgle /smile" as she devoured hers too.-09 Apr 2015

I omitted the balsamic vinegar (husband hates it) but kept everything else the same. It was DELICIOUS and easy to make. I like that it is a savory sweet potato recipe with few ingredients. It's definitely on our favorites list!-16 Nov 2015

Recipe Summary

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (Optional)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pour the oil into a 9x13 inch baking dish, and place in the oven until hot, about 5 minutes.

Add potatoes to the oiled dish, and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, turning after 10 minutes. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and pepper.

After the 20 minutes is up, remove the potatoes from the oven, and sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture. Stir to coat. Return to the oven, and roast for another 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and golden brown. Stir potatoes as necessary to allow them to brown evenly.

Remove potatoes to paper towels to drain, then transfer to a serving dish, and sprinkle with lime juice.

How To Roast Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are one of the most versatile ingredients in the kitchen. They're amazing boiled, baked, sautéed, and OBVIOUSLY fried. (ILY, sweet potato fries.) One of the easiest and most useful ways to cook sweet potatoes is to roast them.

For perfect roasted sweet potatoes every time, abide by these simple rules.

1. Roast at a super high temperature. Low and slow roasting brings out the natural sugars in fruits and veggies. Since sweet potatoes bring plenty of sweetness already, we opt for higher temperature for roasting. This way, they get a nice golden char on the outside, while maintaining a custardy smooth core.

2. Cube 'em up. Unless the goal is to bake your potatoes whole, cutting them into 1" cubes means a faster cook time and more surface area per bite for delicious caramelization. Aim for equally sized potato pieces so that each piece cooks at the same rate.

3. Ditch the skin &mdash or don't. This is totally up to you. Personally, I like the flavor and texture of sweet potato skin, but there's no harm in removing it! The only thing you'll lose is some added nutrients and fiber.

4. Flavor them. You can get pretty crazy here. Dried spices like cumin, chili powder, or curry powder all pair nicely with the sweetness of sweet potatoes. Freshly chopped hearty herbs like rosemary, thyme, or oregano work well, too. Just don't forget the most important flavoring of all: salt!

Now that you've got your perfect roasted potatoes, you can use them to bulk up your morning eggs, toss them in your salad, or use them as a topping in a killer Buddha Bowl.

Ingredient Notes

  • Sweet Potatoes – I used white sweet potatoes, but you can use orange as well. Peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes. See “FAQs & Expert Tips” for more information and the difference between white and orange sweet potatoes.
  • Olive Oil – Substitute sunflower, safflower or avocado oil.
  • Seasoning – We are using a simple combination of paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Look for sweet potatoes that feel firm and have unwrinkled flesh.

Chop the sweet potatoes in roughly the same size so they bake evenly.

Toss with some kind of fat, salt and spices.

Bake on a silplat liner or high-quality baking sheet.

Enjoy with so many different meals!

  1. Rinse the potatoes and dry them well with a kitchen towel.
  2. Cut into cubes or round slices trying to keep them about the same size. I prefer 1 inch cubes or 1 inch rounds.
  3. Toss the cut potatoes with a light drizzle of olive oil (or tahini) and coat well in the spice mix.
  4. Roast at a high temperature up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and toss or flip after 10 minutes. Continue cooking an additional 10 to 15 minutes until crispy golden brown edges form and the potatoes are soft in the center.

Editor’s note: This recipe was originally published on November 12, 2015.

We could never get tired of this roasted sweet potatoes recipe. Sweet potatoes are incredibly versatile as a side dish for whatever protein you’re serving, or as an add-on to salads so you stay satisfied for longer. What’s more, they’re easy to prepare and knock out of the park when you follow this straightforward recipe. Cutting the sweet potatoes into large pieces before roasting cuts down on cook time while also allowing each piece to caramelize but stay creamy on the inside. You can stick with salt and pepper, but this method is a blank slate for adding other flavors, too. Try tossing 2 tsp. ground spices such as cumin or coriander, or blend such as za’atar, berbere, or chili powder with the potatoes along with salt and pepper before sliding them into the oven.

One word of caution: The natural sugars in sweet potatoes mean they can brown very quickly depending on your oven setup, so keep an eye out and toss them occasionally to make sure they don’t burn. Bake them this way once and roasted sweet potatoes are sure to become a staple on your table.

  1. Wash and peel the potatoes.
  2. Cut off the ends and then slice into 3 large pieces or 1/2 inch rounds.
  3. Cut each piece into 1/2 inch cubes.

No need to parboil them before roasting! When you bake the potatoes, they get nice and tender without any parboiling. They are also roasted at a high heat, making them perfectly crispy and cooked through in just 30 minutes.
