  • 3 sweet potatoes - large ( about 3 lb)
  • 1 drizzle olive oil
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes - or to taste
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 pinch sea salt - or to taste
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp oregano


  • Preheat your oven to 500"F
  • Rinse and scrub the potatoes then dry them well in a towel. You can peel them if you like but not required.
  • Slice them into 1 inch rounds or cut them into 1 inch cubes and add them to a mixing bowl.
  • Drizzle over the top with a drop of olive oil 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 tongues and flip them over then cook an addition 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.
