Do you like eating sweet potatoes? As an adult, I have come to LOVE them, but really did not like them as a kid, and avoided them like the plague.

My grandmother, who in her later life lived with us for several months each year, ate a sweet potato every single day. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Frankly, as a kid I didn’t understand her unrequited love of this orange colored vegetable. I mean… it’s just a potato, right?

Now, as a sensible older woman with a much broader flavor palette, I love them too! It must be hereditary, right? Ha Ha.

Behold The Humble Sweet Potato

There’s a lot to love about this filling, nutritious veggie I didn’t appreciate back then. Sweet potatoes are sweet “root” vegetables that are packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and other minerals. They’re also a wonderful source of fiber, which is good for the ol’ gut.

They have some antioxidant properties, which is another reason they are “good for you”. The orange color of sweet potatoes is produced by beta carotene, which we know is good for our overall eye health.

Besides all of this… SWEET POTATOES ARE DELICIOUS! Here’s how to make this simple recipe for roasted curry sweet potatoes. They have great taste and color, and are a cinch to make.

Prepare The Sweet Potatoes For Roasting

You will need about half a pound of sweet potatoes for this recipe. This typically is the equivalent of 2 medium to large sized sweet potatoes.

Use a vegetable peeler or a sharp knife to remove the peel from the sweet potatoes. Discard the peels.

The outer peel is removed from a medium to large sweet potato before slicing.

Cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise first, then slice each half cross-wise into 1″ slices that resemble half circles (on left side of first photo below).

Now cut each of those slices in half (on right side of first photo below). Continue slicing until both sweet potatoes are cut, and each piece is wedge shaped (bottom photo below). Set aside.

Make The Spice Mix

Place salt, curry powder, ground black pepper and onion powder in a small bowl. Stir to combine these spices.

See? Just like that you have an easy seasoning mix you will use to season the sweet potatoes!

Season The Sweet Potato Wedges

Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray, then add the sweet potato wedges onto the pan in a single layer.

Lightly spray the sweet potatoes with additional baking spray (helps the spice mix to adhere). Sprinkle the sweet potatoes with the spice mix, dividing it evenly over the potatoes.

Ready For The Oven

Once the sweet potatoes have been seasoned, they are ready for the oven. Place the pan on the oven’s middle rack.

Bake at 425°F for 20-25 minutes. The time may vary a bit as oven temps can fluctuate. I usually check the roasted curry sweet potatoes for doneness after 20 minutes.

When fully done, the outside should be slightly browned, and the inside should be soft. A butter knife can be easily inserted into the middle of a piece of sweet potato without resistance.

Serve The Roasted Curry Sweet Potatoes

Transfer the hot, roasted curry sweet potatoes from the pan to a wire rack with a spatula. Let them cool for about one minute before serving.

These delicious sweet potatoes can be served alongside a favorite meat, and will be a delicious side dish. The recipe will yield enough for 3 moderate portions or 4 small portions.

The roasted curry sweet potatoes also taste fantastic in Kale and Sweet Potato Salad, because they add such great flavor to the dish.
