The cumin gives an extra kick to these baked sweet-potato wedges.


  • 1 ½ pounds (2 to 3 medium) sweet potatoes

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Scrub potatoes under cold water; pat dry. Halve lengthwise; quarter each half lengthwise.

  2. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss sweet potatoes with cumin, salt, pepper, and oil until coated. Arrange, cut sides down, in a single layer.

  3. Roast, turning potatoes halfway through, until tender and browned, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
