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.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Slice unpeeled sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, then slice each half lengthwise into four strips.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.)
