Sweet Potato Bites

Sweet potatoes are an excellent root veggie to keep in the pantry. Not only do they keep well, but they’re an easy-to-prepare side dish that tastes great with almost any meal. These super simple Sweet Potato Bites are a great recipe for those of us making our first foray cooking sweet potatoes.

When raw, sweet potatoes are similar to their starchy counterparts in texture. Cutting them into bite-sized pieces before baking helps speed up their cooking time and keeps them from being mushy on the outside raw in the middle. Use this simply seasoned recipe as a springboard and change up the flavor combinations to complement a variety of main dishes by sprinkling them with your favorite herbs or spices like oregano, rosemary, curry, or cinnamon.

These super simple Sweet Potato Bites taste great with almost any meal made with a touch of olive oil, freshly ground black pepper, and a dash of sea salt.
