Cuban-Style Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Those who know me, know that we are currently fostering a bunny named Sweet Potato.  This is not him.  (He is still available for adoption, by the way.)

This recipe is quite a hearty side dish, and easy to make.  The lime gives a delicious zestiness to the sweet potatoes, and of course garlic makes everything taste better 😉

The recipe says to serve warm or at room temperature – I have only ever had these potatoes warm, so can’t vouch for their yumminess at room temperature.

Cuban-Style Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Cuban-Style Roasted Sweet Potatoes


  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered (I don’t peel my vegies, and I also cut them a bit smaller than quarters)
  • 60mL extra virgin olive oil
  • Fine sea salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 15mL fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbs + 1/2 tsp chopped fresh parsley


Heat the oven to 200c.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.

Place the sweet potatoes in a medium bowl, toss with 30mL of the oil, and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Spread the potatoes on the prepared baking sheet, and roast until they can be pierced easily with a knife but still offer some resistance, about 30mins.  Let cool for 15mins or so.

Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl, and toss with the garlic, lime juice, parsley, and remaining 30mL of oil.  Adjust the seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
