Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day!

I would like to tell you that I am ready for it, but really I am not. Thanksgiving Day came way too fast for me this year and I am thankful that this year I am only in charge of making sweet potato pies and the macaroni and cheese. I would like to say that is all, but being that I am transitioning to a full vegan lifestyle I will have to prepare meals for myself so that I will have something to enjoy tomorrow along with the rest of my family.

And since I am still having sweet potatoes about three times a week (it is just so comforting right now), I will share with you my most favorite and easy way to prepare them and that is roasted.

Easy Roasted Potatoes Ingredients: 

  • 1 large sweet potato, diced
  • 1 large potato, diced
  • olive oil
  • smoked paprika
  • sea salt
  • ground black pepper

Instructions: 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.and line a baking pan with parchment paper.

Wash the potatoes and dice them in large chucks leaving the skin on. Spread all of the diced potato chunks onto the baking pan in a single layer.

Drizzle them with olive oil and season with the smoked paprika, sea salt, and pepper.

Bake for 20 minutes and remove the pan from the oven and turn the potatoes over and place back into the oven and bake for another 20-30 more minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.

    Oh.. yum. I love potatoes in all forms. So does my son. I really love the mixture of white potatoes and sweet potatoes. I love white potatoes more as a whole, but I love the health benefits of sweet potatoes.

    I love sweet potatoes ☺ I think I mentioned before that I bought a 40 lb box not to long ago and we have almost eaten them all. My daughter loves them a lot. I actually prefer to eat them without any added sugar.

      Yes I totally love them as well and although I did not buy them in bulk I have probably eaten about 40 lbs since Fall began 😉 I actually prefer them more savory without the added sugar as well.
