Roasted Spiced Sweet Potatoes

This recipe uses the unique combination of coriander, fennel, oregano, and red pepper flakes for warm, delicious spice that adds flair to most meals.

  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 lb medium sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Coarsely grind coriander, fennel, oregano, and red pepper flakes in an electric coffee/spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle. Stir together spices and salt.

Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1-inch wedges.

Toss wedges with oil and spices in a large roasting pan and roast in middle of oven 20 minutes. Turn wedges over with a spatula and roast until tender and slightly golden, 15 to 20 minutes more.
