Oven roasted sage sweet potatoes are the definition of fall to me, and the perfect warm food to add to any meal. They are absolutely delicious, and so easy to incorporate any spice you’d like!
Sweet potatoes are a weekly staple in my house because we just never get tired of eating them! What I love about these sweet potatoes is the sweetness from the potato, and the beautiful mix of flavours from all the spices – especially the sage. It gives the potatoes a warm, cinnamon-like flavour that makes every bite mouth-watering.
Ingredients you’ll need for these oven roasted sage sweet potatoes
You will need sweet potatoes of course, and a handful of delicious spices. These include salt and pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, parsley, and fresh sage leaves. The sage is what makes this recipe and potatoes taste so mouth-watering, but if you don’t have sage you can omit it. These sweet potatoes taste delicious with just about any seasoning, even just some salt and pepper! But, adding more spices will up the flavour.
How to prep and cook your sweet potatoes
Preparing these oven roasted sweet potatoes takes about 15 minutes. This includes chopping the potatoes with a sharp chef’s knife and adding the spices, while cooking takes approximately 45 minutes. The spices are the key to this ingredient, so being generous and putting in enough of each spice will give these sweet potatoes the perfect amount of flavour while they roast in the oven!
Once your potatoes are seasoned, you can line them on parchment paper or silicone baking mats (my personal favourites! They’re inexpensive and better for the environment) and cook your potatoes for 45 minutes at 375ºF.
These sweet potatoes are:
- Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside
- Full of spice
