Roasted Sweet Potatoes

We have been at a lack for dinner ideas lately. I pulled out some of my latest Cook’s Illustrated and Cooking Light magazines, and let Misha pick something for dinner. He found an Herbed Roast Pork in Cooking Light and I spotted these Roasted Sweet Potatoes.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Cooking Light, November 2008.


3 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled, rinsed, and cust into 3/4 inch thick rounds (we ended up with Yams, it was all I could find)
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt


  1. In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with canola oil, salt, and pepper until evenly coated.
  2. Line a 18 x 13 inch baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray (be sure that you get every inch!).
  3. Arrange potatoes ina single layer on the baking sheet and cover tightly with foil.
  4. Place potatoes in a cool oven and turn oven to 425. Bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Carefully remove top layer of foil. Return potatoes to oven and cook until bottom edges of potatoes are golden-brown (about 15 to 20 minutes).
  6. Flip potatoes over and continue baking until the bottom edges are godlen brown (18-20 minutes).
  7. Remove from pan, cool for a few minutes and then serve.
  8. Enjoy!

I LOVE sweet potates. This recipe was simple and easy, I will be doing this again, and maybe try the potatoes with a maple-thyme glaze next time. I am always looking for new recipes for sweet potatoes!
