Roasted sweet potatoes are a delicious and nutritious side dish that pairs well with a variety of meals. Here’s a simple recipe to make them:


– 2 large sweet potatoes
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 1 teaspoon paprika
– 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
– Salt and pepper, to taste
– Fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped (optional, for garnish)


1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).

2. Wash and peel the sweet potatoes, then cut them into cubes or wedges, about 1-inch in size, for even roasting.

3. In a large bowl, toss the sweet potato cubes with olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper until evenly coated.

4. Spread the seasoned sweet potato cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil, ensuring they are not overcrowded to allow for even cooking.

5. Roast the sweet potatoes in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until they are tender and caramelized, stirring halfway through the cooking time to ensure even browning.

6. Once the sweet potatoes are roasted to your desired level of caramelization and tenderness, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a serving dish.

7. Garnish the roasted sweet potatoes with freshly chopped parsley or cilantro, if desired, and serve them hot as a flavorful side dish alongside your favorite main course.

Roasted sweet potatoes are versatile and can be seasoned with a variety of herbs and spices to suit your taste preferences. They’re perfect for holiday dinners, weeknight meals, or any time you’re craving a nutritious and delicious side dish. Enjoy!
