Baked Sweet Potato Wedges

I have always loved sweet potatoes, my family not so much.  Oh well, what do they know.  Anyway, I have discovered purple and white varieties, right next to the regular old orange-fleshed ones.  The purple color is outrageous and I have to think something in there is very good for you.  I’m going to say these baked sweet potato wedges are gorgeous, amazingly delicious AND healthy.

I just happened to have some leftover horseradish cream sauce from our St. Patty’s Day dinner, and these sweet potato wedges were perfect to dip in this sauce.  I think they’re fine plain, but use your imagination for a dipping sauce for them.

These are simple, really, simple.  I don’t peel them,  just cut in wedges and then toss in olive oil, roasted garlic and herb seasoning, sea salt and pepper.  Once they’re on the sheet pan, I dust them with some smoked paprika.  That’s it and they are great.

Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients

  • 4 large sweet potatoes, preferably 2 orange and 2 purple-fleshed potatoes
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Roasted garlic and herb seasoning
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • Smoked paprika

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425º
  2. Scrub sweet potatoes (no need to peel unless you want to).  Cut in half lengthwise, and then cut halves into wedges.  Place wedges in a large bowl and drizzle with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil.  Sprinkle some roasted garlic seasoning and salt and pepper.  Just eyeball it, to taste.  Toss with clean hands so all wedges are covered well.
  3. Arrange wedges skin side down on a baking sheet.  Drizzle a bit more olive oil and dust with smoked paprika (I used a small sieve).  Bake in oven for 25 – 35 minutes, until tender.  Check for salt and pepper.  Serve with dipping sauce of choice, or not.  Enjoy.
