Sesame Sweet potatoes Wedges (Baked)

                         Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene for great vision and potassium for blood pressure control. Sesame seeds on the other hand are good calcium sources (see other sources ). That makes a great combo right? In addition, baking cuts down calories by half than frying in a meal of equal portion size.

                         This recipe is easy, simple and involves little time to prepare. Would you prefer a spicy alternative? Check my previous post on my Baked Spicy Sweet potatoes recipe ( )..

Ingredients (Servings: 6)

  1. 6 medium-sized sweet potatoes 
  2. 1 tbsp vegetable oil (I used canola)
  3. 1/4 tsp salt
  4. 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  5. Black pepper to taste (pinch of it)

Method of preparation

  • Heat Oven to 400 F.
  • Peel potatoes, cut into uniform long wedges and place in bowl.
  • add in salt, sesame seeds, black pepper and oil and mix uniformly together.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-30-mins until done (soft and crisp).
  • Pair with any protein and salad of your choice and enjoy as lunch or dinner or as a side-dish or with omelet/ scrambled egg for breakfast.

PRO-TIP: Wash potatoes and damp to dryness before cutting to avoid water getting into the flesh and giving you a soggy result.
