Baked Sweet Potato Wedges Recipe

serves 6

Ingredients:

1 bag of sweet potatoes (about 4-5 medium sized), scrubbed and cut lengthwise

2 tbsp. Olive oil

1/2 tsp. Himalayan salt

1/2 tsp. Rosemary

1/2 tsp. Oregano

1/2 tsp. Basil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Place the cut sweet potato into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add in olive oil, salt, rosemary, oregano and basil.
  4. Using your hands, toss all together thoroughly.
  5. Arrange the sweet potato onto the baking sheet and spread evenly apart. Try not to overlap the wedges so they bake evenly.
