  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds (about 3) medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil



Step 1

Heat the oven (with oven rack in the middle) to 425°F. In small bowl, combine the brown sugar, salt, cumin and pepper (12 turns on pepper mill). Cut the potatoes into ½-inch thick rounds and transfer to a rimmed sheet pan. Drizzle with the oil, sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture and, using your hands, toss to coat. Arrange in a single layer without overlapping and roast until the potatoes are tender, 25 to 30 minutes.


Buy the dark skinned sweet potatoes with bright orange flesh, which are labeled garnet or jewel yams in grocery stores

Leave the skins on the sweet potatoes for extra nutrients and texture; just be sure to scrub them well

Be sure to cut the rounds to even thickness for even roasting
