Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I recently made Sweet Potato Kale Salad with Cranberries, Walnuts, and Goat Cheese because I happened to have all the ingredients. I don’t expect such a refrigerator conjunction again, but I did like the idea of quickly roasting sweet potato chunks on their own or for mixing into another vegetable.



  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Peel and cut the potatoes into ½ inch cubes.
  3. Toss with other ingredients.
  4. Arrange in a single layer on an edged cookie sheet.
  5. Roast 12 minutes or to desired tenderness.


You can bake whole sweet potatoes in the oven for about an hour at 425° (stabbed and oiled), turning halfway through, or in a crockpot (just washed) for up to 8 hours on low or 4 on high.
