Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes

A few weeks ago, I visited my good friend Tila – another staff member of Gather The Jews – in Washington, D.C.  We had a lovely Shabbos and had an amazing meal with great friends.  One of the dishes Tila made was roasted sweet potatoes.  I’ve never seen anyone make a simpler dish that tasted to good.  The amount of sweet potatoes used depends on how many people you are cooking for.  The averages is one sweet potato for every two people.


Sweet Potatoes
Olive Oil


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Wash sweet potatoes and cut lengthwise into two halves.
Cut each half into bite size pieces so that they look like half circles.
Place the cut potatoes on a baking sheet.
Drizzle with olive oil / sprinkle salt and pepper.
Toss to coat.
Cover the tray with tinfoil.
Place in oven and cook for about 35 minutes.
