The Best Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are like running. I know that seems like an odd comparison, but hang with me for a second. If you had told me five years ago that I would run consistently and even enjoy it, I would have told you that you were crazy.

Same with sweet potatoes: I was not a fan, especially of the super sweet kind you normally find at Thanksgiving. But then I found the beauty of roasting them in the oven and boom! I loved them!

These are the tastiest, easiest sweet potatoes you could possibly find. Crispy and peppery, there is none of the sticky sweetness I remember from holidays past.  This recipe makes for a perfect side dish for two people, or a great lunch for one (especially when you add some cheese).

You’ll need:

  • 1 sweet potato
  • Cooking spray
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil.
  2. Wash and dry the sweet potato.  Cut into evenly sized pieces.
  3. Arrange the pieces into a single layer on the cookie sheet.  Spray pieces lightly with cooking spray.
  4. Season liberally with kosher salt and pepper.  Toss to coat.
  5. Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and flip pieces over.
  6. Bake for another 25 minutes on the middle rack of the oven.
