This recipe is so easy that anyone can master these perfectly roasted sweet potatoes.  I should also add that it is not only healthy, it is simple and delicious!

Roasting allows for some of the moisture to evaporate creating a slight crunchiness while caramelizing the flavor.  Don’t worry the inside will stay soft and tasty.

You won’t be able to resist them!

Normally I roast my sweet potatoes with a little olive oil and Kosher salt but this seasoning is just so delicious and really equally as easy that I think I’ll be doing this recipe from now on.

Warning – your house is going to smell absolutely delicious.  Expect everyone to come running when the flavors start sizzling into the potatoes!  The first time I made them I think my son ate half of them before I had a chance to grab some of my own and sit down!

sweet-potatoesI can’t wait for you to try these – even people that do not normally like sweet potatoes will love these.  Try them as a side dish, on Meatless Mondays, with a dip or as a snack!  Leave a comment and let us know how you like them!

Don’t forget about all the vitamin A, C, and beta carotene this dish delivers!  I like to think when I eat these that my skin and vision are thanking me  🙂

Enjoy!
