Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 Teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch-thick disks
  • Cooking spray

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix the paprika, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Add the oil. Blend with a fork until there are no lumps.

Add the sweet potato disks to the bowl. Toss until they are coated on all sides. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the sweet potatoes in a single layer on the sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn the disks over and bake until tender, about 10-15 more minutes.

Only buy potatoes that are firm, intact, and without any sprouts or green parts.

Sweet Potato Cooking Tip

Potatoes oxidize quickly; have a bowl full of cold water to put your potatoes after cutting them in order stop them from oxidizing.
