Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium orange sweet potatoes, in cubes
  • 1 teaspoon salt smashed with garlic
  • 2-4 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 – 1 1/2 medium onions, in cubes
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Black pepper
  • Rosemary
  • Marjoram

Instructions:

Preheat the oven at 190 C (370 F)

Place the washed potatoes and onions in a bowl. Add the olive oil, salt+garlic, cayenne pepper, black pepper, rosemary and marjoram into a small bowl. Mix it well until everything is incorporated.

Add the mixture to the bowl containing the potatoes and onions. To aid with the distribution of the seasoning, use your hand or a plastic spatula.

Once everything is mixed up, transfer it to a tray with aluminum oil and place it in the oven. When the sweet potatoes are tender, turn on the broil to toast them a little. Once you reached the toastiness level, turn off the oven and let the potatoes cool down a bit. Enjoy it.

Until next time, Hungry People.
