Sweet potatoes are a staple in a paleo lifestyle, and I am always looking for more recipes for side dishes. I make around four to five side dishes a week (I cook weekly) and like to rotate recipes to keep it interesting. In that respect, sweet potatoes are my absolute favorite side dish. I even use it as an easy paleo snack, with slightly smaller wedges and served some mayo or aoli.
To keep things quick and simple, I like roasted side dishes and for me nothing beats these paleo sweet potato wedges. The combination of paprika and sweet potatoes is amazing and if you haven’t tried already, you really have to give it a go. The other spice I use for sweet potatoes is cumin, and this is so much better than that.
Paleo Sweet Potato Wedges Recipe
- Sweet potatoes, cut into wedges
- Coconut oil (or any other paleo friendly oil)
- 1 heaped tablespoon paprika
- Preheat your oven to 200 degrees centigrade
- Cut the sweet potatoes into wedges. You don’t need to be too strict here, just as long they are roughly the same size.
- Put the wedges into the roasting tray and coat with oil. As much oil as you are comfortable using. A minimum of one tablespoon or will be too dry.
- Now add the paprika and toss to coat all the sweet potatoes. I am very generous with the paprika, as you will see from the pictures.
- Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes or until it is baked through.
