Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper for spiciness
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons roasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Toss the sweet potatoes with the vegetable oil, chili powder, cayenne, and salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes, stirring gently every 5-10 minutes.
  2. Increase the heat to 400 degrees and roast for another 5-10 minutes until the sweet potatoes are turning golden brown. Continue to stir the sweet potato pieces as needed to prevent over-browning. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  3. On a separate platter or directly on the baking sheet, drizzle the sweet potatoes with the sesame oil and tahini. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Add a handful of cilantro leaves. Serve immediately.
