We like this recipe with a mixture of sweet potatoes and baking potatoes, but you can make it with just one or the other.
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced, or 1/2 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
3 small sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), each cut lengthwise into 8 wedges
3 small baking potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), each cut lengthwise into 8 wedges
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450°.
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add potatoes; seal and shake to coat potatoes with spice mixture. Place potatoes on a baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 35 minutes or until tender.
Conveniently, this recipe matched what was in my vegetable bin. I lowered the temp thanks to the prior reviews and used several whole cloves of garlic. I also chopped the veggies into larger chunks rather than wedges. This would be good with an onion too. Really good; the spices are a nice change up in flavors.
We love this recipe! It's so easy, healthy and tasty. I've found that 425 is a better temperature (for 30-35 minutes). I omit the garlic, or use a dash of garlic powder; minced garlic can burn before the potatoes finish cooking. If potatoes in the market are large, use 2 large ones instead of 3 small. Overall, a great recipe!!
This was so much better than I expected. The spices with the two types of potatoes equals yummy!
It appeared that I had burnt these, especially the sweet potatoes, so next time, I will have to keep a better eye on them. The taste did not taste burnt but doesn't do well in appearances.
