Roasted Sweet Potatoes - Comfort Food Recipe

Roasting vegetables is easy!  The key is in the timing.  How long you roast will depend on the vegetable, and how small the pieces are.  I confess I do not measure amounts here.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

(Serves 4-6)

6 Large Sweet Potatoes
Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Scrub the sweet potatoes with a vegetable brush and dry them with a paper towel.  I leave the skins on.  Cut them in half, then in half again.  Continue slicing longways, to the desired thickness.  Place them on a cookie sheet or sheets in one layer.  Drizzle with a little olive oil and distribute it with your hands making sure everything gets covered.  Add more oil if necessary.  I don't want them sitting in a pool of oil, but I don't want them dry either.  Place the potatoes in the oven and bake until soft and slightly caramelized on one side (check in 30 minutes).  Use a fork to test for doneness.

Variations:  Sprinkle with Garlic Powder, Thyme, Cayenne Pepper, or Cinnamon
