A quick how to on making Whole Roasted Sweet Potatoes. Easy and my go-to method for perfectly cooked sweet potatoes. Serves 4 but can easily be doubled or cut in half.

Whole roasted sweet potatoes are a healthy, nutrient-packed side to just about anything. I especially love them topped with salted butter and brown sugar. However, just salt and pepper is perfectly delicious too.

You can enjoy them warm or cold. I like to make them in advance and enjoy them throughout the week. In fact, I roasted these last Monday and enjoyed them for majority of the week until I made this epic grilled peach salad. Best week ever.

To Make Whole Roasted Sweet Potatoes You Will Need:

  • sweet potatoes

I prefer to use olive oil spray to avoid using too much oil, but you can use whatever oil you have on hand.

Spray or oil all sides of the sweet potato and really massage it into the skin. This will add flavor to the sweet potato skins.
