Of course, this is a somewhat sweeter variation, but I have another slightly savory variation – this Easy Roasted Cumin Sweet Potatoes recipe, which I have found works better for things like wraps…depending on what kind of wrap you decide to make:)
What Are The Spices?
- Cinnamon (preferably Ceylon cinnamon as it has benefits to health such as lowering and balancing blood sugar vs. the regular cinnamon you find at stores which is called Cassia cinnamon)
- All Spice – a little black round herb, which you can pulverize yourself or just get it in powdered form.
- Pumpkin Spice – which contains a mixture of a few spices that I have found really enhance the flavor of the potatoes
What Kind of Oil To Use?
We recommend using avocado oil because of its high smoke point (some are up to 500 F) and also because it is not known to break down in harmful constituents in the body as vegetable oils such as canola and soybean oil can do. Some health experts have been okay with using olive oil for cooking and baking as well, however, there is a lot of debate with regards to its usage beyond using it at room temperature or very low heat. Next time you’re at the store, however, I would definitely pass on purchasing the standard “vegetable oil,” canola, or soybean to start. Most health optimizers and “biohackers,” today approve of using ghee and coconut oil for the most part – they are heat stable and are not known to break down into undesirable constituents in the body. Coconut oil imparts a slightly sweet flavor and coconut aroma to foods.
For a sweeter dish, you can add apples that are sweet and tart (such as honeycrisp apples), and/or drizzles of honey
