Sweet Potato Boats

Sweet Potato Boats

My obsession for sweet potato is real and not going away. The perfect sweet potato is well.. perfect. 

The method I use for roasting sweet potatoes is fail-proof and makes the best fluffy sweet potatoes with a slightly crunchy outer crust. 

What you need?

Sweet potatoes

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Spices of your choosing – I like garlic powder, onion powder and paprika OR cinnamon 

What to do?

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Wash your sweet potatoes really well – scrub the skin with a brush if you have one. Pat dry. Cut longways in half and place on a baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper over the top. I like to rub the olive and spices into the potatoes. Place sweet potatoes cut side down on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20 mins and flip halfway so cut side is facing up. Bake for another 15-20 and check with a fork to see when they are tender. At the end I like to mince up a garlic clove, sprinkle it over top and bake for another 5-10 mins.
  5. Make a bunch of potatoes and store them in an airtight container all week!
