Oven roasted sweet potato wedges
Making this simple but oh, so delicious recipe, all you need is a handful of ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. For this recipe is best to use medium sweet potatoes instead of larger sized ones. I used olive oil as this is always my choice when I make healthy recipes but sunflower oil would work well too.
For my sweet potato wedges I used hot chili powder as that’s what I had on hand but you could substitute it with cayenne pepper or hot paprika. As herbs I always prefer thyme but this herb could easily be replaced by basil or oregano.
I made my own mayonnaise for the sauce and I totally recommend you do the same as it tastes completely different than store bought mayo and enhances the flavors in the sweet potato wedges.
Please note that altering the recipe will give a slightly different taste so keep this aspect in mind if you choose convenience over taste and decide to use the spice you have on hand.
To make this recipe, you will also need:
Spicy baked sweet potato wedges with herbs
- 3 medium sweet potatoes scrubbed clean
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp hot chili powder
- 1 tsp dry thyme
- salt and pepper to taste
For the mayonnaise sauce:
- 1/2 cup homemade mayonnaise
- 1/2 tsp hot chili powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp lime juice
You will also need:
- large mixing bowl
- baking sheet
- parchment paper
- Preheat the oven to 450 F.
- Scrub clean the sweet potatoes then dry in paper towels.
- Cut the sweet potatoes in half and then cut each half into four equal sized wedges.
- Place sweet potato wedges in a large mixing bowl and drizzle olive oil. Mix to coat evenly.
- Add the seasonings and mix to coat evenly.
- Arrange the sweet potato wedges on a lined baking sheet.
- Place into the preheated oven and roast until the potatoes are browned and crispy on the outside but tender on the inside, 25 to 30 minutes. For crispier wedges, keep 5 more minutes.
- Make the sauce: mix the mayonnaise with seasonings and lime juice and mix to combine.
- Remove sweet potatoes from the oven and serve with mayonnaise sauce.

merci pour votre idée, belle passion
Naming ingredients (sweet potatoes,salt,pepper, chili powder, etc.) without listing quantities is what my mom did to my sisters; she meant no harm but she was a ‘scratch’ cook who now has daughters who are convinced they don’t belong in a kitchen because they were never given proper instruction. Please take the word ‘recipe’ off of your header, you’ve given us a food ‘story’. You’ve wasted my time….
Dan, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. You need to learn how to read blogs, though! And when the article says “Click to read more”, I strongly suggest you do so, if you want to see the rest of it, which in this particular case, is the mysterious recipe.
I clicked read more 4 times and never came upon an actual recipe.
Mary, I may be wrong but my guess is you’re using a browser with an ad blocker which unfortunately blocks images (that “read more” section is an image), making you unable to click that image/object. The recipe is here https://theseamanmom.com/spiced-herb-roasted-sweet-potato-wedges/2/
