Crispy Roasted Sweet Potatoes

When I saw these crispy roasted sweet potatoes in Victoria magazine, I could not wait to make them. Sweet potatoes were on my ‘food-I-hate’ list for a long time. Then at some party, trying not to insult the host who baked them to their crispiness, I took few bites. Since then I was hooked. Sweet potato fries with sour cream or caramel sauce are my favorite, but I’ve been known to serve them in a yummy salad as well.

Usually, I roast my sweet potatoes spread  on a cookie sheet, drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with salt, pepper, and cumin. Then I roast them crispy, but sometimes they stick to the bottom of the sheet. This method of roasting gets them crispy without all the sticky mess. The only downside is that they bake longer.

Victoria magazine subscription was a gift from my sweet bloggy friend Katie. It’s about charming homes and gardens, whimsical decorations and world travel, but they also share few recipes. This crispy roasted sweet potatoes recipe was in the latest issue. I have few more marked and set aside to make. If they’re as good as this one, I’m excited to try them.

    So simple and so yummy! Back in Singapore, the sweet potatoes are dipped in batter and then deep fried (of course right! the best way to eat. :p) much like banana fritters. Yum, yum. Yours is way healthier! LOL

    These sound amazing!
    For years I thought I didn’t like sweet potatoes. Turns out I just didn’t like that people put sweet things on sweet potatoes.
    Yours sound amazing!
    I have one potato in the fridge and I’ll be trying your recipe tonight!
    Thanks!
