Wedges Tips

  • SUBSTITUTIONS: If you find yourself without dried basil, the beauty of this recipe lies in its flexibility. Substitute dried basil with other dried herbs based on your taste preferences or what you have available in your pantry. Options like parsley, dill, oregano, or a blend of these can infuse the roasted sweet potatoes with unique and delightful flavors.
  • Any kind of oil is good, I like using avocado oil or grapeseed oil. Olive oil, canola oil, or even melted coconut oil can also work well. Each oil brings its own unique flavor profile to the roasted sweet potatoes.
  • Combining melted butter and oil ensures a luxurious and well-rounded flavor. The butter adds richness, while the oil contributes to a softer texture and helps the potatoes crisp up during roasting. Then season with garlic powder, dried herb and salt.
  • Add some parmesan cheese for extra flavor if you wish, this is optional.

Sweet Potato Wedges FAQ’s

How do you cut sweet potato wedges? Cut sweet potato in half, then slice through potato, you might have 6-8 wedges from each potato, it depends on the size. The other important tip is to use sharp knife since they are harder to cut.

Why are my sweet potato wedges soggy? It’s possible that they aren’t evenly spread on the baking sheet; there should be some space between them for proper air circulation. Make sure to arrange them more evenly. Additionally, they might have been baked for too long. Additionally, sweet potatoes naturally have a higher moisture content compared to regular potatoes. If they are not properly dried before roasting, this excess moisture can lead to sogginess. Pat the sweet potato wedges dry with a paper towel before tossing them in oil and seasonings. Preheat your oven adequately, and roast the them at a higher temperature (around 400°F) to promote crispiness.

What’s good to eat with sweet potato wedges? Sweet potato wedges are versatile and pair well with a variety of dishes. You can eat them with hummus or dressings, they will also taste great with sour cream based dips. Enjoy sweet potato with a variety of dipping sauces such as garlic aioli, chipotle mayo, or a tangy barbecue sauce. Serve as a side dish with your favorite burgers, sandwiches, wraps etc.
