Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Baked sweet potatoes are so easy to make, making them an incredibly healthy side dish ready to be served with absolutely anything. One of the easiest and most useful ways to cook sweet potatoes is to roast them. The one question I get most often is to peel or not to peel? This is a personal question depending on what results you’re after. Sweet potato skins are edible and become crispy in the oven while roasting, just like regular potatoes. The beauty of roasted sweet potatoes is that they can be cooked either way and still be absolutely incredible. You can always adjust this recipe to suit your taste.
