Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp oil (I use avocado or coconut)
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes wedged
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Scrub the sweet potato(es) clean.
  • Cut the potatoes into wedges...first, cut off the ends. Then, cut the potato in half. Cut each half in half, lengthwise. Finally, cut them into 4-5 wedges, lengthwise again.
  • Rinse the wedges with cold water for 10-15 seconds and pat dry.
  • In a large bowl, mix the oil with the seasonings.
  • Toss the wedges with the seasoned oil, using your hands to coat each one.
  • Spread them out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet that has been lightly greased. They should have ample room and not be touching.
  • Bake them for 20 minutes.
  • Flip them over and bake for another 8-12 minutes. Watch them closely those last few minutes, they should be dark golden brown, not black.
  • Cool a bit and enjoy!
