Roasted Spicy Sweet Potatoes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by iris5555

from Gourmet magazine via The original recipe called for 1 teaspoon of kosher salt, but I thought that was a bit too much--you may want to revert to the original amount. I roasted my potatoes at 350 degrees for an hour, turning them after one half hour.

I really loved the mix of flavors. I only used 1/2 tsp salt and added a pinch more after the potatoes cooked. (better to use less and add more as needed) I also used 1/2 tsp of cumin seeds to the spice blend and used a 1/4 tsp of ground chipotle, for a little smokey flavor. I am a huge fan of sweet potatoes that are cooked with savory seasonings.
