Plain Jane Roasted Sweet Potato
Prep time

Total time
When you simply roast a sweet potato until softened, the outside skin separates from the bright orange inside that turns soft and sweet with a caramelized flavor. It is superb. Plain. Jane. Sweet. Potato. These are healthy carbs - the gorgeous rich color tells you that this vegetable is full of beta carotene vitamin A! Don't let anyone tell you that this is a bad food for you - sweet potatoes are not responsible for anyone being obese, it was the marshmallows, brown sugar, butter and pecans!
  • Small evenly sized sweet potatoes - one per person
  • olive oil
  • sea salt
  1. Rinse sweet potatoes in water, rub with a drop of olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and roast on a baking sheet in a 350 to 400 degree oven for 45 to 60 minutes, or until soft when squeezed. Split and fill with a drizzle of sugar free maple syrup.
  2. For the first time, enjoy the caramelized flavor of a delicious sweet potato rather than covering it up with sugar and marshmallow
