Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Cooking Time

45 Minutes


Serves 4


  • 1 ½ pounds sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 to 1 ½ tsp chili pepper
  • 4 gloves garlic, chopped fine


Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Place the prepared potatoes (or yams) and onions in a reusable plastic bag.

Drizzle in the olive oil.

Shake bag to coat vegetables well.

Next, spread the vegetables into a glass baking dish in one layer; sprinkle evenly with the chili powder.

Cover with foil and roast for 35 minutes.

Remove the foil, carefully add the chopped garlic evenly, then cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring until the vegetables are tender and lightly browned.

Serve warm.
