• 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional: additional seasonings such as garlic powder, paprika, or rosemary


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  2. Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes under cold running water to remove any dirt or debris. Pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel.
  3. Peel the sweet potatoes using a vegetable peeler, if desired, or leave the skin on for added texture and nutrition. Cut the sweet potatoes into evenly-sized cubes or wedges, about 1-inch thick.
  4. Place the sweet potato cubes or wedges in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the sweet potatoes and toss to coat evenly.
  5. Season the sweet potatoes with salt, black pepper, and any additional seasonings of your choice, such as garlic powder, paprika, or rosemary. Toss again to distribute the seasonings evenly.
  6. Spread the seasoned sweet potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, making sure they are not overcrowded. This allows them to roast evenly and develop a crispy exterior.
  7. 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.
  8. Once the sweet potatoes are golden brown and fork-tender, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a serving dish.
  9. Serve the roasted sweet potatoes hot as a delicious side dish or accompaniment to your favorite main course.
