Chili Cumin Sweet Potatos

Serves 4


2 large yams (or sweet potatoes)
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon sea salt

Step by Step:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400F.
  2. Thoroughly scrub your potatoes under cold running water – you want all the grime OFF your potatoes as you’re leaving the skin on.
  3. Cut the sweet potatoes into chunks. They don’t need to be perfect, but the more uniform in size you get them, the better. I went for 1 ½ inch pieces.
  4. Throw the potato chunks into a large bowl.
  5. Melt your coconut oil in the microwave (this’ll only take a few seconds).
  6. Drizzle the coconut oil over the sweet potatoes.
  7. Add the cumin, chili powder and salt.
  8. With clean hands, toss the potatoes with the oil and spices.
  9. Spread the seasoned sweet potatoes even onto a jelly roll pan.
  10. Place in the oven and set the timer for 15 minutes.
  11. At the 15 minute mark, open up the oven and, using a spatula, flip the potatoes over the best you can.
  12. Close that oven up and set the timer for another 15 minutes
