- 2 pounds sweet potatoes, about 3 large ones
- 1/8 cup olive or other vegetable oil
- 1 Tbsp salt
- 1-2 Tbsp spice or spice combination of your choice: chipotle powder, smoked paprika, Chinese five-spice, pumpkin pie spice, garam masala, Cajun seasoning, etc.
Method1 Preheat oven to 450°F. (For more crispiness, preheat your oven to 500°F.)
2 Peel the sweet potatoes and cut off the ends. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and then, if they are very long, in half crosswise. Cut each piece into wedges.
3 Put the sweet potatoes into a large bowl and add the oil. Mix well to combine. Sprinkle with salt, and spices of your choice. Use your hands to mix well, so all pieces are coated with oil and spices.
4 Spread the sweet potatoes out in a single layer on a wire cooking rack.
5 Bake for a total of 25 to 30 minutes, or until they are well browned. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
The baking times are approximate; it depends on how thick you cut the wedges or rounds of sweet potatoes. Try to cut them evenly so they all cook at about the same rate. For best browning results bake only one sheet at a time.
