Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes! I personally love them. I grew up eating sweet potatoes and they are full of healthy goodness. My family, well, they didn’t always love sweet potatoes. I’ve had to switch it up a little to get them to love them as much as I do.
Cinnamon Sweet potatoes was the first recipe that I created with this root veggies that my kids actually loved and would eat. We have since expanded how we eat sweet potatoes, but this was definitely the first. And I can tell you, it’s worth a try!
This recipe is easy to make and delicious.
It’s a perfect side dish all year long, but equally yummy to bring to the table for special gatherings and holidays.
Here is the recipe for you to dice, bake and try….
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 2 - 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Wash and peel the sweet potatoes.
Slice and dice them. Place the dice potatoes into a bowl. Coat them with the canola oil.
Stir the cinnamon, onion powder and sea salt together. Sprinkle it into the oil coated potatoes and stir until they are evenly covered with the spiced mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes; until the potatoes are tender and start to crisp along the edges.
Slice don’t Dice? You can actually peel and thinly slice the sweet potatoes, lay them on a nonstick baking sheet and bake them. My kids love Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes baked like this.
Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes on a Salad! Say What? Oh yes, you heard me right. We put the leftovers on a salad with grilled steak, asparagus, honey goat cheese, beets & pistachios. Here is the link to leftover yumminess.
Involve the kids! Depending on the kids ages, I would not recommend on cutting sweet potatoes. They are very hard. However, younger children can certainly help measure, mix, stir and prep.
