How lớn Bake Sweet Potatoes

For a long time, I thought I didn’t like sweet potatoes. When I was growing up, I only ever had them in casserole form, smothered in marshmallows và brown sugar. Turns out, I love sweet potatoes, but I have to lớn prepare them the right way! I lượt thích mine puffy, with caramelized edges and a crispy skin. Here’s how I make them:

Preheat the oven lớn 425°F & line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.Use a fork lớn poke holes into the sweet potatoes, và set them on the baking sheet.Roast for 40 to lớn 50 minutes, or until the skin has puffed up & you can easily pierce them with a fork.

The most important thing to lưu ý here is that I DON’T wrap them in foil.

If you do, the sweet potato flesh will still cook, but the skin will be very moist & almost slimy. In order to lớn get delectable, puffed up crispy skin and caramelization on the outside of each baked potato, place them onto the baking sheet bare!

If you’re in a hurry, you can also roast sweet potato halves for 30 minutes. Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, rub them with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, & cook cut-side up until lightly browned và tender.

If you’re serving your oven baked sweet potatoes as a side dish, pair them with your favorite protein or vegetarian chili. For a topping, stick to butter, Greek yogurt, or sour cream, or try adding a dollop of cilantro lime dressing, tzatziki, chipotle sauce, pesto, guacamole, or a drizzle of tahini sauce.

If you have leftover baked sweet potatoes, save the soft flesh for another recipe. I blend it into the frosting of my vegan chocolate cake, transform it into a luscious Alfredo sauce, use it to bind quesadillas, or phối it into hummus!
