Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Quick Roasted Sweet Potatoes are an easy side dish to cook up all season long. They use pantry staples, and most of the cook time is hands-off. This is my favorite way to make sweet potatoes! They have a gorgeous orange color, and a sweet and savory flavor that I love. While they roast in the oven, you can finish up your other dishes. They’re delicious with meat and a veggie, added to grain bowls with a runny egg, roasted veggies, and sauce, or even for breakfast with your favorite eggs. More of my favorite sweet potato recipes are these baked sweet potatoes and these air fryer sweet potato fries!

How to Roast Sweet Potatoes

  1. Prep: Start by preheating the oven to 425°F, and lightly spray a baking sheet with oil. You can also line it with foil to reduce cleanup.
  2. Next, cut the sweet potatoes into 3/4-inch cubes. It’s best to cut them all the same size so they cook evenly.
  3. Then, Season the Sweet Potatoes: Toss the potatoes with olive oil, herbs and spices. Spread the mixture in an even layer on the sheet pan.
  4. How Long to Roast Sweet Potatoes at 425°F: Cook the sweet potatoes for 30 to 35 minutes until fork tender, golden, and browned on the edges. Keep an eye on them to avoid burning.)

Variations

  • Potatoes: Substitute Yams or butternut squash for sweet potatoes.
  • Seasoning: Add onion powder, cumin, chili powder or make it smokey with smoked paprika. Make it spicy with ground cayenne pepper or chipotle pepper.
  • Herbs: Use any mix of dried herbs you have, like oregano, thyme, and parsley. Fresh rosemary would also be good.
