In this age of complicated, over-the-top recipes I find myself going back to basics. I’m talking simple preparations of good foods like these baked sweet potato wedges. It’s recipes like this that I make on a busy weeknight, or on a Sunday big cook session where I make healthy dishes to eat during the week.Simply wedge sweet potatoes and toss them with oil. Season and bake until tender and beginning to brown. That’s it. Basic. Good.
Easy Baked Sweet Potato Wedges Recipe
1 pound sweet potatoes (3 small or 2 medium)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt or fine sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Scrub potatoes; cut each potato lengthwise into 8 wedges. Place sweet potato wedges in a large bowl; drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat potatoes with oil. Arrange sweet potato wedges in a single layer on parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Bake 20 minutes; turn and bake 15 to 20 minutes more until tender and lightly browned.
Makes 3 servings
Tip: I like serving these simple sweet potato wedges with harissa yogurt. To make harissa yogurt combine 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt with 1 1/2 teaspoons harissa hot sauce, 1 teaspoon olive oil and a pinch of kosher salt.Recipes you might also like:
