Spicy Roasted Sweet Potatoes

roasted sweet potatoes


This roasted sweet potatoes recipe is an excellent side dish! Sweet potatoes contain lots of great nutrients so it is super healthy. There are many ways to mix this recipe up and the seasonings you use can change the profile a bit. For example, you can add parmesan cheese, and do ½ balsamic vinegar ½ olive oil or do a sweeter version with cinnamon. But I prefer my sweet potatoes a bit more savory…. And a litte bit spicy. If you are not a fan of spicy, just eliminate the hot sauce.
