2clovesgarliccrushed or grated
Juice of 1 lime
1large sweet potatochopped into 1cm/½inch cubes (ish!)
Preheat your oven to 220C / 200C / gas mark 7 / 425F.
Mix together the cumin, paprika, chilli, salt, garlic, olive oil and lime juice in a large bowl.
Add the cubes of sweet potato and stir to coat thoroughly. (Or use your hands!)
Place the sweet potato cubes on a large non-stick baking tray, ensuring the cubes are well spread out (use 2 baking sheets if necessary) and in a single layer.
Roast in the oven for 20 minutes.
It’s crucial to ensure the sweet potato cubes are spread out well over the baking sheet - if they are touching each other too much or piled on top of each other they will steam rather than roast…which won’t be half so nice!I have found that if you use a good non stick baking sheet, the cubes don’t need turning throughout their cooking time, but if you are at all worried do give them a check after 10 minutes and turn them if you think necessary.Nutrition information is approximate and meant as a guideline only.
