Soooo, these sweet potatoes are out of control delicious. Let me break it down.
Large wedges of orange sweet potato are tossed in olive oil, honey and smoked paprika, then roasted until caramelized at the edges and creamy inside. Size does matter here, because it allows you to achieve that contrast in texture with each wedge. The sweet potatoes are then finished with sliced green onions, cilantro leaves and a drizzle of tart lime yogurt. Each bite is just packed with bold flavors and varied textures, making this what I like to call a “sexy side dish.”
Often, I’ll pair sides like these with a piece of roasted chicken or seared steak and a simple salad. The sweet potatoes are the main attraction on the plate, and the others are just supporting characters. When you’ve got vegetables that taste this good, you let them shine.
I should mention too that this is a suuuuuper easy recipe. The sweet potatoes are roasted with a few pantry staples, and all the toppings can be prepped while the potatoes cook. They’re also really good with just a fried egg on top 🙂 Continue reading for the recipe.
