It’s no secret that I love my sweet potatoes, and my oldest shares my love. We decided to freshen things up and make Ginger Roasted Sweet Potatoes instead of Herb Roasted Sweet Potatoes that were on repeat for weeks before we left town. Just as I love sweet potato ginger is another favorite and fresh ginger with a little maple syrup makes these delicious sweet potatoes for spring. Although they can be enjoyed anytime I find myself using certain herbs more at different times of the year. Using rosemary, thyme, and cinnamon more in the fall months. Ginger, mint, cilantro more in the spring and summer months for example. In the summer we have grilled sweet potatoes and sweet potato fries on repeat!
Great as a side, on a salad, under eggs, the options are endless so I usually make big batches of roasted sweet potatoes though they don’t last long as we will eat them for every meal, even sneaking them out of the fridge if you are me or my oldest, until they are gone.
Still looking for a side to serve with Easter? These also would make a great quick, easy, healthy dish! You can even dress them with chopped cashews and or some dried cranberries or golden raisins.
Ginger Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Makes 4-6 servings, as a side
2-2 1/2lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (approx 1″ chunks/wedges)
1 TBSP coconut oil, melted
1 TBSP maple syrup
1-2 tsp grated fresh ginger
Preheat oven to 425F. Line a rimmed cookie sheet with foil and set aside. Cut potatoes into 1″ chunks and toss with coconut oil, ginger, and maple syrup and spread evenly on foil lined baking sheet. There are a couple ways to make these. If you want to make them quick or want softer potatoes and cover with foil and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes (check at 10 minutes if you cut even smaller cubes) until tender. If you want them a little crispy and brown, more traditionally roasted, remove foil and place them under the broiler for a couple of minutes. Even under the broiler slightly to brown this method will produce the brightest sweet potatoes. Enjoy!Ginger Roasted Sweet Potatoes make a great addition to breakfast, lunch, or dinner! #wholefoods #vegan #glutenfree Click To Tweet
