This recipe is gluten free and vegetarian.
Instructions for all sweet potatoes:
1. First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
2. Grab 2 sweet potatoes and wash them throughly in lukewarm water. Dry them.
3. Next, chop the ends off each, then proceed to cut them vertically into 2-3 slices like the ones pictured above.
4. Place the sweet potato slices onto a pan. Drizzle olive oil onto all of them. Sprinkle on salt, black pepper, and garlic powder onto all of them.
5. Now, this is where it’s your choice on how many you want to specially season.
- You can leave them as is or add chili lime seasoning onto some, 21 seasoning salute, or a spices blend for veggies. When I made these, 4 of them had the spices blend, 3 had chili lime, and 2 had 21 seasoning salute so it’s up to you.
6. Bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes (Or once you can fully stick a fork into the potato)
