    Chile-Garlic Roasted Sweet Potatoes

    Give ordinary roasted sweet potatoes a big flavor boost with this quick, Asian-inspired seasoning mix.


    • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, scrubbed (and peeled, if desired), cut into 1-inch wedges or pieces
    • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil
    • 1 tablespoon chile-garlic sauce (see Note)
    • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper


    Step 1
    Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450°F.
    Step 2
    Combine oil, chile-garlic sauce, soy sauce and white pepper in a large bowl. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat with the seasoning mixture.
    Step 3
    Spread the potatoes evenly on a rimmed baking sheet.
    Step 4
    Roast, stirring once or twice, until the potatoes are tender and browned, 20 to 25 minutes.


    Note: Chile-garlic sauce (also labeled chili-garlic sauce, or paste) is a blend of ground chiles, garlic and vinegar. It can be found in the Asian section of large supermarkets and will keep for up to 1 year in the refrigerator.
