Roasted Sweet Potatoes make a good and healthy side to many sauces and stews, like the Nigerian Tomato Stew, Nigerian Egg Stew, Nigerian Tomato Sauce, Mackerel in Tomato Sauce. It also pairs excellently with guacamole.
You can add your own spices to it, just be sure the spices don’t clash with the sauce you will serve it with.
Also with large sweet potatoes, I sometimes use cookie cutters to cut out shapes that excite children and impress adults.
It can be cut into wedges for roasted sweet potato fries or wedges.
