Simple Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Yield: Serves 4-5


  • 3 large sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil (or melted coconut oil)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Rinse and scrub the sweet potatoes to remove any dirt. With a sharp knife, chop up the potatoes into 1/2-1 inch cubes (as seen in the picture above).
  3. Place the chopped potatoes on a large baking sheet, drizzle the olive oil over the top, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Use your hands to toss everything together to make sure all of the potatoes are coated.
  4. Spread the potatoes into an even layer, spreading them out as much as you can. This is key because if they are stacked on top of each other too much, they will steam and not turn brown when they cook.
  5. Place the pan in the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes, until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside.
