Spicy Roasted Potato Recipe

4 servings


We love this roasted potato recipe so much that we always make a big double batch. Dip the cubes in ketchup or barbecue sauce or just eat them plain. They are perfect with our Black Bean Burgers. Yum! Also try the version below, which uses curry spices.
















roasted potatoes
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp cayenne

24 oz peeled orange sweet potatoes
24 oz peeled gold potatoes


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a small dry cup, combine chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, onion powder, and cayenne.

Peel sweet potatoes and gold potatoes and then weigh them. Cut them into 1" cubes and put them in a large straight-sided bowl. Sprinkle the spice mixture over them. Toss with a large spoon until the cubes are evenly coated with the spices. Spread them out on the parchment-lined baking sheet so the cubes are not touching. Bake for 30 minutes.

Comments: Orange-fleshed sweet potatoes are usually called yams in the United States. We like the mix of sweet and gold potatoes, but use your own favorites. Purple or white sweet potatoes are also delicious.  

A serving of these potatoes is very filling, and the calorie density is only 31 calories per oz. Who ever knew weight loss food could be so good? Once you taste these, you will never eat greasy fried potatoes again.
