Ingredients

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 tsp olive or avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (see notes for other spice options)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, then into 4 wedges lengthwise. Depending on how big your sweet potato is, you may need to cut the wedges in half.

  • Place wedges into a mixing bowl, and drizzle in oil and sprinkle with paprika. Toss with your hands until all of the sweet potatoes are covered.

  • Place the wedges on a baking sheet. I do not line my baking sheet as I find that the metal will give the wedges a better crisp to the outside. Bake for 12 minutes, flip the wedges and then bake for another 12-15 minutes or until they are tender and golden brown.
