Coconut Roasted Sweet Potatoes

These roasted sweet potatoes use the flavorful coconut oil instead of butter or other oils.  It perfectly compliments the sweetness of the potatoes and gives it a tropical undertone.


  • 2 large sweet potatoes

  • 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil

  • Pinch of salt


Peel the sweet potatoes, and cut them into pieces roughly 1 inch big.

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat, and add the coconut oil. When the oil is melted, add the sweet potatoes and salt and toss to coat in the oil. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook until the potatoes are fork tender, about an hour. Let the sweet potatoes cool slightly before serving.
