I always peel because I don’t like the rough texture. However, it is your choice because the peel is edible.

Tips for easy healthy oven roasted sweet potatoes
- Line baking tray with aluminum foil to make clean up easy.
- Adjust the amount of spices, based on your preference.
- For a spicy kick, sprinkle 1/4 tsp red chili flakes.
- Add 1-2 tbsp honey, maple syrup or brown sugar, prior to baking to give these potatoes a more caramelized flavor.
- For a savory flavor, sprinkle some Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
- Be sure to toss the potatoes halfway through baking because this allows even baking and caramelization. Furthermore, make sure potatoes are not overlapping to ensure even baking.
- For quick baking, cut small chunks that are about 1 inch in size.
- I highly recommend peeling potatoes for the best overall texture.
- Mix in 8-10 brussel sprouts (cut in half) to this recipe. Fresh work best.
- Mix in 1 cup of cubed beets to this recipe. Carrots are also another great choice.
Roast sweet potatoes whole vs. Roasted sweet potato cubes vs. Roasted sweet potato slices
Whole potatoes take the longest, followed by slices and then, cubes. Since cubes are small and only about 1 inch big, they roast the fastest and great, when you are short on time.
Roasted sweet potatoes fries and wedges are another option and work great as a snack, finger food or appetizer at game day parties and tailgating. Fries are thinner than wedges and thus, cook the fastest.
