Baked Sweet Potato Wedges

I’m not sure there’s a simpler or more delicious side dish than crispy baked sweet potato wedges with a spicy dipping sauce. And, I am certain this is one of the funnest ways to eat nutrient-packed sweet potatoes!

Sweet potatoes are filled with vitamin A and C, potassium, B vitamins and vitamin E. They are also a great source of fiber, which is important for heart health and digestion. You may notice in the recipe that I don’t suggest peeling the sweet potatoes before cooking them, and that’s because the skins have an abundance of nutrients and fiber – plus, skipping that step makes for quicker and easier prep! It’s a win-win situation.

The other thing I love about this recipe is that it only calls for a few ingredients – sweet potatoes, oil and salt. And if you make the dipping sauce, you just need a little mayo (you could also try it with plain Greek yogurt or a mixture of both), a can of chipotle chilis in adobo sauce and a clove of garlic. Six ingredients and easy prep = a plate of crispy wedges that’ll disappear in no-time!
