Rosemary Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Rosemary Roasted Sweet Potato

I love Japanese sweet potatoes because they are the perfect blend of sweet and starch. The average serving of Japanese sweet potato is 5 inches — or about 130 grams. This serving  size contains just under 120 calories, none of which come from fat. For my paleo and low-carb friends out there, sweet potatoes are a great carbohydrates to have in your diet.

To add, these potatoes are a great source of vitamin A (~200% of the recommended daily value). Prep these Rosemary Roasted Sweet Potatoes in a big batch to serve with meals throughout the week. They are delicious and filling.

  2. In a small bowl, mix all of the spices together. Set aside.
  3. Rinse the sweet potato and chop into bite-sized pieces. Leave the skin on ( — it’s got the nutrients).
