New Year! New Recipes! - - - Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges

This is a recipe I've been sitting on for awhile, but with the New Year upon us, it's the perfect opportunity to bring it out to share! A lot of times we make resolutions that can be big or small, but tend to involve some kind of healthier eating habits. Once you try this version of "fries," you'll be hooked. My family adores them, and I hope yours will too. When we make resolutions to eat healthier, it's not just for us, but really should be for all of our loved ones as well. This recipe doesn't ask you to try anything crazily foreign, making it a great choice to ease your way into a new year filled with new foods.

Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges
Makes 4 servings

2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into wedges
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 vegetable oil spray

1. Preheat oven to 450 F.

2. Combine sweet potatoes, cinnamon, salt, cumin, black pepper, and garlic powder in a plastic bag. Seal and shake. 

3. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet (do not overlap) coated with vegetable oil spray. Bake for 20 minutes or until very tender, flipping potatoes once during cooking.
