Sweet potatoes need nothing more than a little seasoning and some time in the oven to be transformed into a satisfying side dish. Try them with our Honey-Mustard Glazed Ham for a tasty sweet-savory combination.
1Heat the oven to 450°F and arrange a rack in the upper third.
2Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes. Cut them into 1-1/4-inch chunks and place in a large bowl.
3Add the brown sugar, a few tablespoons of oil (just enough to coat), a few large pinches of salt, and a couple of pinches of pepper and mix until the sweet potatoes are evenly coated. Spread on a baking sheet in an even layer. Bake, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potatoes are lightly browned and roasted, about 30 minutes.
This salad is nutrient and antioxidant-packed, with healthy doses of fiber, iron, potassium, vitamin C, and beta-carotene. It's a delicious side that's a cinch to prepare.
