  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano

  3. Grind your spices, herbs and salt together in your spice blender. You can also do this by hand with a mortar and pestle.
  4. Mix the ground spices with the olive oil and pour into a large bowl with sweet potatoes. Using a spatula, gently coat the potatoes with the spicy oil mixture. (If making this recipe for kids, leave out the spices and just use oil and salt.)
  5. Once your potatoes are thoroughly coated, lay them out on your greased pans. Make sure that the potatoes are not overlapping or they will not get crispy.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes at 425 making sure to flip them once during baking so they brown evenly on both sides.
