Roasted wedges of spiced sweet potatoes are the star side dish for any weeknight meal that needs a little something extra.
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  1. Set oven to 425.
  2. Prepare potatoes. Scrub potatoes and trim ends. Cut potato in half at the equator. Stand one half of the potato on the cut surface and cut in half again. Take the quarter of the potato, lay it on the largest cut surface and cut into six wedges. Repeat this process with the remaining ¾ of the potato.
  3. Toss the wedges with oil on a baking sheet. Sprinkle salt, cinnamon, and chili powder over wedges and toss again.
  4. Bake for up to 30 minutes, tossing the wedges at the 20 minute mark. If the potatoes are done, but the rest of dinner isn’t, turn off the oven and leave the wedges to sit for another 15 minutes if necessary.
