Sweet Potatoes

Known for their vibrant orange color and natural sweetness, sweet potatoes are a wonderful vegetable to have on hand. Not only that, they are good for you too! Count me in!

For this recipe, the sweet potatoes can either be peeled or un-peeled. Choose whichever option you prefer! Use a sharp knife to cut the sweet potatoes into wedges before tossing them with the fresh herbs and brown sugar.

Seasonings

Since this recipe has a simple ingredient list, I highly recommend using fresh herbs vs. dried. But, dried herbs can also be used! Dried herbs are much more pungent, so I would use 1 teaspoon of each instead of 1 tablespoon each.

The combination of the brown sugar and fresh herbs really brings the sweet potatoes to life. Toss in a bit of seasoned salt and it’s the perfect seasoning combination!

Toss to coat the wedges completely in the brown sugar herb mixture on a baking sheet and stick them in the oven. Let the oven do it’s thing!

PS: I’ve been loving these gold baking sheet pans from Williams Sonoma!
