Roasted Spiced Sweet Potato Wedges

Posted by  on Wednesday, October 13th, 2010 at 11:18 am

Oh Dining Detour, how I have been neglecting you. In my defense, September was ridiculously busy; I was in the Bahamas for a quick weekend, Trish got engaged! Celebrated Christina’s bridal shower and bachelorette in AC,  The Opera season opened, I moved out of my beach house (tears), and Joanna got engaged!  Okay, I am starting to realize all these events sound like wonderful things, and not like excuses I had originally designed them to be, but as a result of all my indulgence Dining Detour has suffered in my silence.

I would like to bring back Fall with some guilty gusto. So let’s talk sweet potatoes. I made these wedges (a.k.a. healthy word for fries) last night and they were easy to prepare–think 10 minutes of your attention–and all the Autumn deliciousness I was hoping for.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Roasted Sweet Potatoes


  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes (the latter will make them quite spicy, so using
  • according to your preferences)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil


Preheat oven to 425°F.

Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1-inch wedges. Toss wedges with oil and all spices in a large roasting pan and roast in middle of oven 20 minutes. Turn wedges over with a spatula and roast until tender and slightly golden, 15 to 20 minutes more.
