We usually expect sweet potatoes to be mashed with butter and sweetening and presented as a soft side dish. In this more unusual approach, sweet potatoes, which are full of fiber and beta-carotene, are cut into long wedges and roasted until slightly crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Butter and sugar are unnecessary and won't be missed.
- Preheat oven to 450°F. Slice unpeeled sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, then slice each half lengthwise into four strips.
- Coat a 9" x 13" baking dish with olive oil, then pour remaining olive oil into a small bowl. Use a pastry brush to brush olive oil over cut surfaces of sweet potato wedges, then place them skin-side-down in prepared pan. Roast in lower half of oven for 15 minutes, or until pierced easily with a fork.
- Remove pan from oven and let sweet potatoes cool. Transfer to a plate. Sprinkle with lime juice and salt, and eat them right out of the skins with a spoon or whole with your fingers. (If using fingers, make sure the potatoes are cool enough to handle safely.)
