Oven Baked Sweet Potatoes

Pin It

I am not a fan of recipes that add a ton of sugar to the already decadent sweet potato. I can't bring myself to messing up one of natures wonderful creations by putting candy on top of them and cooking them to death.

These lightly baked potatoes are allowed to really shine by just adding a touch of seasoning. The olive oil gives a wonderful mouth feel and the smokey paprika marries well with the rich sweetness of the potato.

sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped uniformly
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and cracked black pepper
smoked paprika

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Put potatoes on top of foil and drizzle with olive oil.
Add seasonings and toss well.
Tent potatoes by pulling foil up over top and folding.

Bake until fork tender. About 30 minutes.

  1. I like to put some sesame oil on sweet potatoes when I roast them. I love the sound of these with paprika and can imagine it's delicious!

  2. Mmm, sesame oil. I'm going to try that with some ginger and tamari.

  3. I love sweet potatoes and using sesame oil would be amazing!!!! :)

  4. I think so too! I'll post, when I try the sesame&ginger combo.
