Roasted Spiral Sweet Potatoes

13 Apr

Sweet potatoes are very popular in health circles. Compared to white potatoes they have more fiber and cause the blood sugar to rise more gradually than white potatoes. Sweet potatoes are also a rich source of vitamin A and betacarotene. Usually I make baked sweet potato chips or fries, so I decided to try to cook them a different way, and came up with this idea. I especially loved the way it looked on the plate.

  • sweet potatoes peeled and sliced like an accordion (don’t cut through) 
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground red pepper
  • dash of salt

Whisk the seasoning together. Drizzle the potatoes with most of the oil mix. Bake in 400 degree oven 40 minutes. Drizzle with the remaining oil mixture.
