Welcoming Fall with Sweet Potatoes

I spend a lot of time in the summer dreading the fall.  Warm, sunny weather in the Pacific Northwest is a rarity and I truly do hate to see it go.  But now that cooler days have set in, I’ve remembered that I actually like wearing scarves and sweaters, using the fireplace, and making crock-pot dinners.  I also love sweet potatoes.

Even for breakfast.

These are perfect alongside some local grass-fed goat sausages.  I made enough for a few days and then breakfast was just a few microwave buttons away.

Ingredients
– 3 small sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
– 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
– 1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
– 2 tsp cumin
– 1 tsp paprika

Preheat oven to 425F.  Toss all ingredient in a large baking dish until vegetables are well coated.  Roast for about 45 minutes, until fork-tender, stirring halfway through.

  1. Hey thanks for posting a link to my Sweet Potato Fries recipe. I’m always on the lookout for good sweet potato recipes and yours looks fantastic! How did the cumin and paprika do together?

  2. Hi Hannah,
    We just got home from a month in Oregon and we just loved those cool temp’s, but we needed a jacket some of the days on the beach. Your Cumin Roasted Sweet Potatoes will be a favorite dish with us and those sausages would really top it off. Hope you are having a great week and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
    Miz Helen
