Ingredients and Variations

SWEET POTATOES: Choose sweet potatoes that are firm without blemishes in the skin. In this recipe, I most often peel the sweet potatoes but this is optional.

SEASONINGS: Olive oil, savory thyme, and parmesan cheese showcase the roasted flavor of the sweet potatoes perfectly!

VARIATIONS: Try a butter blend of garlic, rosemary, and sea salt, or any combination of herbs.

Serve Roasted Sweet Potatoes With…

This is a last-minute, healthy, hearty side that can be served alone or topped onto a salad, added to a wrap, or mixed into a homemade Vegetarian Chili. Add some Quick Cheese Muffins to the meal along with a Glazed Ham Loaf and a tangy salad like Cucumber Tomato Salad.

Perfect Roasted Sweet Potatoes

  • Much like roasted potatoes, ensure all pieces are about the same size so they cook at the same rate.
  • Toss with the oil and seasonings right on the pan to avoid washing a bowl.
  • Many stores sell fresh diced sweet potatoes in the produce section to save time.


Roasted sweet potatoes can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. They’re great served chilled on a salad (especially a kale salad or Brussels sprout salad). They can also be added to soups or stews.

Freeze cooled sweet potatoes in small zippered bags for up to a month and use in soups, omelets, stir-fries or top a salad!
