Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Warm Spices and Lime

Warm spices like cumin, coriander, and ginger play beautifully with the inherent sweetness of sweet potatoes, enhanced by the caramelization of both the sweet potatoes and onions in this dish. A squeeze of lime adds a bright finish.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Warm Spices and Lime

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 pounds garnet sweet potatoes (also known as yams), peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 cup finely diced onion
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Juice from 1/2 lime

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450. Mix together coriander, cumin, ginger, black pepper and sea salt in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, toss together sweet potatoes and onions with the spice mix and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and toss again, then spread onto a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes, flipping with a stiff spatula after 10 minutes.

When sweet potatoes and onions are tender and caramelized, transfer to a serving dish and top with lime. Toss to coat and season with additional salt if you like.
