Oil-Free Spiced & Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Oil-free spiced and roasted sweet potatoes are delicious; roasting caramelizes the sugars and intensifies the flavors of the sweet potatoes without the added fat that oil brings.
The oil-free technique described below also works well with all types of potatoes, root vegetables and non-starchy vegetables like cauliflower; the time varies but the basic method remains the same. Be sure to let sit for at least 10 minutes after spicing (step#10 below). For potatoes and sweet potatoes, the total roasting time is about 45 minutes. A typical bake sheet will hold up to 2 pounds of potatoes in a single layer.
