Oven Roasted Sweet Potato Cubes Recipe

Let me count the ways I love oven roasted sweet potatoes: cubes, rounds, wedges, slices, curly fries, whatever the shape I will eat them all.

Savory crispy roasted sweet potato cubes!

Also healthy, easy and vegan, which is why we are roasting them, but all that goes without saying. 
There’s different cooking times depending on the shape and size of course, I noted them all below. 

It’s all about the seasonings!

The ultimate secret to roasting sweet potatoes is to get the seasonings just right. Lots of magical savory spices: smoked paprika notes, garlic and onion powders, oregano and just enough sea salt to balance everything into the perfect flavor symphony. 


Should you peel sweet potatoes?

Ideally you won’t peel them but i did ( less work + there’s nutrients in the skins) unless the texture bothers you. Make sure to eat them hot, straight out of the oven, but i must say they also make great leftovers and a perfect addition to any Buddha bowl.

Should I boil the potatoes before roasting?

When it comes to sweet potatoes I suggest not boiling them. Unlike the waxy golden potatoes they have a tendency to get mushy so it really doesn’t help your ideal roasting goals. 

What to eat with roasted sweet potato cubes?

chunky guacamole
hummus, harissa or a lemon herb sauce
onions & peppers
cilantro & lime salsa.


Can you cut sweet potatoes the night before roasting?

Yes, absolutely! Sweet potatoes do not turn brown like golden and russets when exposed to air, so cutting them in advance is perfectly fine!

How to make roasted sweet potato cubes: 

  1. Rinse the potatoes and dry them well with a kitchen towel.
  2. Cut into cubes or round slices trying to keep them about the same size. I prefer 1 inch cubes or 1 inch rounds.
  3. Toss the cut potatoes with a light drizzle of olive oil (or tahini) and coat well in the spice mix.
  4. Roast at a high temperature up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and toss or flip after 10 minutes. Continue cooking an additional 10 to 15 minutes until crispy golden brown edges form and the potatoes are soft in the center.

  • Drizzle over the top with a drop of olive oil (or tahini)and the spices. Use your hands and toss well to combine and get even coverage all over. 
  • Place them on a parchment lined baking sheet without touching each other and roast in the hot oven for 10 minutes. 
  • If you cut the potatoes into rounds use a pair of kitchen tongs and flip them over. Cook an additional 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown around the edges.  
    If you cut them into cubes then use a spatula and give everything a gentle toss after 10 minutes and continue cooking another 15 minutes or so until golden brown to your liking.

  • When choosing sweet potatoes make sure to go for an orange or red skin variety that is firm all over. For best results make sure to use a large baking dish / sheet pan, the more room your potatoes have the better they roast with the perfect crispy edges.

  1. Just made these sweet potato rounds and they were gone in no time. I’m also ordering lots of smoked paprika now, I know these are going to be on repeat every week. Thank you for such lovely vegan inspiration Florentina!

  2. I made these for my family and they liked them except for my youngest. I’m thinking 1 tbsp of oregano was too much. Next time I’ll use .5 tbsp of oregano. Delish!
