Easy Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes have been a staple in the Custom Kitchen for as long as I can remember. Even before I stopped being able to eat white potatoes {nightshade intolerance, FTW}, I loved the sweets. Something so satisfying about them.

I’m a sucker for sweet potato fries. I also happen to love sweet potato hash, sweet potato latkes, sweet potato and chickpea curry, sweet potato balls, sweet potato and black bean wraps, and…well. You get the idea.

But these roasted sweet potatoes are, in a word, divine.

And super simple to boot.

It literally takes 5 minutes to prep these bad boys, and another 30-45 minutes to roast them (depending on how thick you cut them). Little effort for an incredible accompaniment to any meal.

  1. Reply Delicious! I love sweet potatoes too.
  2. Reply Roasted sweet potatoes are quite possibly my favorite thing ever. They are great with Happy Herbivore's "cheese" sauce smothered over them (made with nooch so I count it as a complete meal). They are also the only veg that I have successfully roasted on multiple occasions without burning or messing up. Yes, I can mess up roasting vegetables. :(
