How to make roasted sweet potato cubes
Full directions in recipe card below.
Start by preheating the oven and lining a large baking sheet with parchment paper..
Trust me on the parchment paper as it will save you a ton of clean up time later!
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut up into bite sized cubes.
Mix the cubed sweet potatoes with olive oil and seasonings in a large mixing bowl.
Then place on the prepared baking sheet and bake in preheated oven to golden brown on the outside and tender in the middle.
Recipe notes and substitutions
You can use any variety of sweet potatoes for this recipe but I recommend garnet sweet potatoes for this recipe.
Sweet paprika could be subbed for the smoky paprika although I prefer it with the smoky flavors.
Make sure to coat the potatoes well and you can use your hands to mix and thoroughly coat all the cubes.
