Sweet, Sweet Potatoes

So for the past few months I have had a major sweet potato obsession. Mashed, baked, stir fried, hot, cold - I simply cannot get enough of these delicious, nutrient packed vegetables. However, my favorite - and easiest - recipe for them that I've tried to date is this one. It might not seem like much, but I assure you it is positively addictive.
This is really great with avocado too, so if you have one on hand, dice it up and toss with the sweet potatoes right out of the oven.

Savory Lime Sweet Potatoes

1 small to medium sweet potato, peeled and diced
2-3 TBS lime juice
1 TBS olive oil
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp onion powder
salt and white pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Mix all ingredients except the diced sweet potato in a large bowl. Add potato and toss to coat.
  3. Spread out on a baking sheet, flipping potatoes after 15 minutes. Let cook another 15-20  minutes. Great served on a bed of lettuce with some fresh lime juice.
