You can enjoy these sweet potatoes cut into small chunks, as wedges, or even as fries. Just remember that thinner cuts will take less time in the oven. And sweet potatoes go from golden to burnt very quickly - so keep a close eye!
Recipe type: Side
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • ½ teaspoon fennel seeds
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes (1/2 teaspoon was a bit too spicy for us)
  • 2 pounds medium sweet potatoes or yams
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F and lightly grease a large baking dish or baking sheet.
  2. Coarsely grind the coriander, fennel, oregano, and red pepper flakes in an electric coffee/spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle.
  3. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into 1-inch wedges, or into 1-inch chunks.
  4. Toss the wedges with the oil, spices, and salt, and spread them in an even layer in the baking dish.
  5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, checking in every 10 to 15 minutes to turn the sweet potatoes and keep them from sticking.
