Spicy Roast Sweet Potatoes

This is my new favorite way to eat sweet potatoes.

It's also really easy. Really, really, easy.

Here's what you need:

Sweet potatoes
Olive oil
Black Pepper
Smoked Paprika
Granulated Garlic (yes, I do this the lazy way)
Cayenne Pepper

Peel the sweet potatoes, or scrub them. I usually leave the peels on.

Cut sweet potatoes into chunks, and place in a baking pan.

Add spices and olive oil.

Mix well to coat evenly- I used my hands. Yes, I washed them. I compulsively wash my hands when I cook... should I not have said that?

Bake, uncovered, at 210 C till the sweet potatoes begin to carmelize (about 45 min). You may want to gently stir halfway through cooking time.

Serve hot or cold. 

What's your favorite way to eat sweet potatoes?
