How to Make Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Orange


  1. Heat oven to 425. Grease a large baking tray with cooking spray.
  2. Peel and cut sweet potatoes into approximately 1-inch cubes. Place in large bowl.
  3. Wash and zest orange, then cut in half and juice it into a small bowl. Add the zest, olive oil, thyme, about 1/2 teaspoon of salt and black pepper. Whisk to emulsify.

  7. Sprinkle with more salt and pepper to taste, and more fresh thyme, if desired. Serve.
