- Bake the oven for approximately 25 minutes, until brown on the edges and softened. Stir halfway.
- Serve warm when done or let cool and save in an air-tight container.
Neat idea to roast them and nice to have a new way to use sweet potatoes. However, after 20 min at 425 they were still basically raw. They either need double the time or cook with a lid on.
Hey Kristen! Thanks for commenting and trying it out. Sorry the potatoes were under-cooked for you 🙁 That's no good. Hopefully with the adjustment in cooking time, you still like the taste. Thanks again 🙂
