I absolutely love that Trader Joe’s has pre cut, peeled, and washed veggies. It is the best time saver ever, especially since sweet potatoes are a pain to prepare.
J was so nice to take me to the grocery store so I told him to pick out whatever vegetable he wanted for dinner. Sweet potatoes are his favorite! They also have pre cut butternut squash as well. I was all out of brown sugar so I used raw sugar instead. I used just enough to sweeten them up to help bring out their natural flavors.
Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Sweet Potatoes ingredients:
1 bag of Trader Joe’s pre cut sweet potatoes OR 3-4 sweet potatoes peeled and diced into 1 inch cubes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp raw sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet lined with foil, spray with non stick cooking spray. Add the olive oil, salt, pepper, sugar, and cinnamon. With clean hands, toss all ingredients together so the potatoes are fully coated.
Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes flipping them half way.
I love roasting vegetables so they caramelize and all of the natural flavors come out of them. They are fantastic when they are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
Feel free to modify this recipe, this would be great with a little pumpkin pie spice!
