Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Simple roasted sweet potatoes are this plant based family's favorite side dish (or main dish). Pair these babies with some steamed broccoli, and you've got yourself a great meal. My kids go crazy for sweet potatoes, they can't get enough of these. We especially like them alongside some veggie/bean burgers, baked beans or with the No-fu Love Loaf.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

4-6 medium sweet potatoes
Parchment paper
spray oil, optional
salt, optional


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut parchment paper to fit a large pan for roasting. Peel and chop your sweet potatoes so that the pieces are pretty equal in size. Lay the sweet potatoes in a single layer on the parchment paper/pan. Sometimes I need to use a smaller roasting pan as well, depending on how many sweet potatoes I'm cooking. Spray lightly with oil, sprinkle with salt if desired. Roast for 25 minutes, flip sweet potatoes and roast another 25 minutes. Watch carefully so they don't burn. Remove from oven and serve.
