Japanese and Hannah sweet potatoes (as well as garnet and jewel yams) are wonderful when prepared this way. Sweet potatoes and yams contain more moisture than regular potatoes, so are softer in texture.
1 pound or 2 medium sweet potatoes, about 4 cups, sliced in wedges, 1 inch thick at the widest point
1 tablespoon olive oil blend (EVOO and Spectrum high-heat oil) or a seasoned EVOO like McEvoy Ranch’s Rosemary, Basil, Lavender or Jalapeno Oils
1/4 teaspoon unrefined sea salt, or to taste
Garnish or Condiment: Smoked paprika or catsup
1. Preheat oven to 400°. Mix sweet potatoes with oil and salt. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheet, one layer thick.
2. Bake until crisp on outside and tender on inside, about 45 minutes. Turn once after 30 minutes. Serve hot or keep warm in a 200° oven. Garnish to serve.
