Baking Sweet Potatoes:
To start, preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Wash and dry your sweet potatoes, then prick them all over with a fork. Place them on a baking sheet lined with foil and bake for about 45 minutes or until they're tender. The result? Soft, caramelized sweet potatoes that are perfect on their own or as a side dish.
Boiling Sweet Potatoes:
If you're short on time, boiling sweet potatoes is the way to go. Peel and cut your sweet potatoes into 1-inch cubes, then place them in a large pot and cover with water. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain the water and serve. It's that simple!
Roasting Sweet Potatoes:
For a crispy and flavorful twist, try roasting your sweet potatoes. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Peel and cut your sweet potatoes into 1-inch cubes, then toss them in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them out on a baking sheet and roast for about 30 minutes or until they're crispy and golden brown. The result? Irresistibly delicious sweet potato cubes that are perfect as a snack or as a side dish.
