I never liked sweet potatoes.
I still don't.
Unless, of course, they are prepared like this...
Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes
What you need:
- sweet potatoes, peeled and diced evenly
- carrots, peeled and sliced
- onion, peeled and roughly chopped
- salt & pepper
- 2 tbsp. oil
- garlic powder*
- dried basil*
What you do:
Preheat the oven to 425 F.
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until well combined. Transfer to a baking dish and spread evenly.
Bake for about an hour. You will have to stick a fork in a couple pieces to see if they are tender enough for your liking. I also have a seriously old-ass oven and it takes faaa-evah for something to roast in there.
I could eat this every day. Every. Day.
This is what it looked like on my dinner plate that night...
Let me know what you think!
*I really just eyeball these amounts. Everyone has different preferences, but if I had to give an educated guess, I would say I put 1/3 tsp of each. Turmeric and paprika can become a little bitter if you use to much, so start with a little at first.
That wasn't a very big help was it?!
