Oven Roasted Sweet Potato (White Flesh Variety)

Ingredients

  • 1 large yellow flesh sweet potato, washed & peeled or not
  • 1-2 tbsp of grapeseed/coconut/vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp onion granules/powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric

  2. Spread oil on a prepared baking sheet & set it aside.
  3. Cut your sweet potato into equal pieces. About 1.5 inches.
  4. In a bowl or on the same baking sheet, add all of the spices & mix, making sure that the sweet potato pieces are covered well.
  5. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until tender and browned. Times may vary by your oven.
  6. Halfway through the baking flip the sweet potato pieces.

If you refrigerate the cooked sweet potatoes reheat them in the oven for best results. Preheat the oven to 350°F/177°C and heat for 10-12 minutes.

Great on it's own or as an accompaniment to my Soda Bread recipe. Looking for some protein? You can add some ground beef to this recipe (my mom often did, although I prefer it without). Watch me make it here.
