As a side dish, Roasted Sweet Potatoes never disappoint. They just pair so well with many dishes, such as pork loin, baked chicken, and some other savory meals. But did you know that Roasted Sweet Potatoes offer more than just good taste? They also provide different nutritional benefits because they contain vitamin A, magnesium, B vitamins, and potassium.
Nothing says fall like the warm, nutty taste of roasted sweet potatoes. This recipe is made extra delicious by the addition of Coco Treasure’s Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.

Serve this as a side dish with meat or poultry, or to make a hearty, healthy salad for lunch or dinner, toss these slightly caramelized, lightly crispy potatoes over salad greens dressed in your favorite balsamic vinaigrette. Add a handful of toasted walnuts and a generous sprinkle of goat cheese for the final touch.

Don’t worry. This recipe is very easy to prepare. In fact, it can be seasoned in many ways. You can sweeten it up with cinnamon or add a salty kick with some rosemary and sea salt. However, this recipe we shared is all about having a healthier twist. Instead of using ordinary oil, we used coconut oil to give a light coconut flavor. Hope you like it.
