These easy roasted sweet potatoes are my go to sweet potato recipe.

They are the perfect side dish for any meal!

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables, and I usually buy a few every week when I’m at the grocery store.

It didn’t always used to be this way though.

Many foods that I grew up disliking, I learned to love once I started to experiment with cooking myself.

No more plain whole roasted sweet potatoes for me!

Until I started cooking, I’m pretty sure the only time I ate sweet potatoes was at Thanksgiving.

Now I eat them all the time! My favorite way to make sweet potatoes is roasting them until they get a little crispiness on the sides.

These are great for throwing in cauliflower rice burrito bowls with some fajita veggies and guacamole!

From sweet potato nachos to sweet potato tacos and healthy chocolate milkshakes, sweet potatoes are so versatile and so delicious.

Peel your sweet potatoes and dice them into small cubes with a knife.

Toss the sweet potato cubes with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder until coated on all sides.

Spread out sweet potatoes in an even layer on a baking sheet and put them in the oven.

Roast sweet potato cubes until crispy, flipping every 10 minutes to avoid burning.

It should take around 25 – 30 minutes.

They are great for tossing in salads, on nachos, in bowls, enchiladas, tacos, or just eaten as a side dish!

The spices are a starting point that are mild enough for any recipe.
