A recipe for oven baked sweet potatoes that are healthy and vegan! They are only 100 calories, lightly sweet and taste freakin’ delicious! 

Healthy Roasted Oven Baked Sweet Potatoes RecipeI looooove having sweet potatoes around! All winter long I have a bowl of sweet potatoes on hand at all times so I can throw them in pretty much everything we make. They keep in our kitchen for weeks after we buy them – it’s so easy. Be it tacos, minestrone, or egg scramble, chances are there are sweet potatoes involved. They are just so convenient.

Just as they are an essential part of our winter diet, sweet potatoes are an expected side dish at our Thanksgiving and Christmas meals.

The light sweetness of the sweet potatoes shines through but you don’t have to load on a bunch of brown sugar and marshmallows like you do with many holiday sweet potato recipes. Serving them sliced also makes for a stunning side dish that will add a pop of color to your holiday table.

You thought I was done gushing? Oh heck no – they are also healthy! Only 100 calories for a generous serving and they’re vegan! What’s not to love?Healthy Roasted Oven Baked Sweet Potatoes RecipeHealthy Roasted Oven Baked Sweet Potatoes Recipe
