Usually, I have a few sweet potatoes in the refrigerator and add them to various dishes as called for. In my opinion, sweet potatoes add to almost any dish. They balance the savory and tart flavors nicely. I was making a chicken dish for dinner and was about to make rice as my side dish and out of the corner of my eye, I saw those favorite sweet potatoes. The rice will wait for another dinner. Rice does not go to waste, in this house, nor does quinoa.
Needless to say, these easy to make potatoes are delicious.
adapted from Bon Appétit | November 2005
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
seasoning of choice (I keep seasoning blends such as Shwarma seasoning or Indian seasoning on hand)
1/8 cup pure maple syrup
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Spray 1 baking sheet with cooking oil.
Place sweet potatoes chunks on baking sheet, spreading evenly. Spray with cooking oil. Sprinkle with Curry seasoning Roast until almost tender, turning occasionally with metal spatula, about 35 minutes.
Drizzle maple syrup over sweet potatoes and toss to coat. Roast until sweet potatoes are tender and syrup is reduced to glaze and coats sweet potatoes, about 20 minutes.
This is so simple, it does not need to be written up but it is equally as good and is worth sharing. This goes with almost any other food, fish, poultry, meat, salads, vegetarian and dairy.
