Roasted sweet potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes. They pair well with many of my favorite meals, they’re rich in flavor and are high in nutrients.
Oven roasted sweet potatoes make for a tasty side dish! They pair well with many meals like baked chicken, roast, pork loin and many other savory meals.
Sweet potatoes are rich in flavor and are high in vitamin A, vitamin C, B vitamins, magnesium and potassium. There are many ways to add this delicious healthy food to your diet! I love sweet potato casserole, baked sweet potato crackers (grain free), baked sweet potatoes (sometimes we stuff them with goodies) and roasted sweet potatoes in coconut oil.
Roasted sweet potatoes are easy to prepare and can be seasoned in a variety of ways. My family likes them seasoned with rosemary and sea salt and I like to sweeten them up with cinnamon! You can use any oil to bake your sweet potatoes in but I always use coconut oil. It gives the sweet potatoes a lovely sweet coconut flavor. Plus, coconut oil is the healthiest fat to cook with!
However you decide to season your roasted sweet potatoes, I’m sure they’ll be a huge hit at your dinner table!
