Easy Roasted Asian Sweet Potato

Ingredients

2 large Asian Sweet Potatoes, chopped into bite size chunks (we love to keep the skin on for extra crunch and nutrients)*

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

unrefined olive oil or coconut oil, as needed

1 tablespoon Sucanat, or your choice of sweetener

Method

Easy Roasted Asian Sweet Potato

  1. Heat the oven to 400F.
  2. Mix the sweet potato chunks, cinnamon, sea salt and oil in a pan.
  3. Roast for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Take out of the oven and sprinkle with Sucanat.
  5. Mix well and serve.

*Note: Make sure to choose the Asian Sweet Potato that is reddish purple on the outside and beige on the inside. When roasted, the edges of the Asian Sweet Potato become deliciously crunchy whereas the regular American Sweet Potato tends to soften dramatically in this recipe.
