I am obsessed with sweet potatoes. I’ll admit it. It’s starting to get out of control. I’m finding ways to sneak them into my meal prep each week because I love them so much. But sometimes, I just like to keep them simple. So I thought I would share with you my favorite way to make them. It’s super easy and just 3 main ingredients!

Start out by preheating your oven to 425 degrees. Then grab a baking sheet and cover it with tin foil and spray it with a non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

Then grab your sweet potatoes and wash and peel them. Then chop them up in even, bite-sized pieces. I’ve found that about 1″ cubes work the best. Anything larger will take longer to cook.

In a large mixing bowl, add the chopped sweet potatoes, oil, garlic, and any seasonings you like. Thoroughly mix everything together until the seasonings are spread throughout. Then pour everything onto your lined baking sheet and spread evenly. Make sure that the sweet potato cubes are in an even layer so that they all cook at the same speed. Bake for about 30 minutes at 425 degrees (or until a fork can easily pierce a potato).

This recipe is the perfect side dish for almost any meal! I love serving it with my seasoned turkey burgers and a vegetable for a delicious and complete meal!
