Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions; to ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required, and to understand the steps and timings involved.

Sweet potatoes are often said to be healthier than white potatoes, but that’s just one of those diet myths we’ve all be suckered into believing!

Both potatoes are comparable in their calorie, protein, and carb content, but white potatoes provide more potassium, and sweet potatoes are incredibly high in vitamin A.

Sweet potatoes are naturally a little sweeter, and make a nice change from the regular kind. We enjoy them roasted, mashed, baked, and as wedges like in this recipe!

These spicy sweet potato wedges with a herbed coconut yogurt dip make a great appetizer before a meal or on the buffet at a party. Or serve without the dip as a side dish with chicken

Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients (and equipment) needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. You can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

Ingredients
  

  • 2 large sweet potatoes sliced into wedges
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup coconut yogurt
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp fresh dill minced
  • 3 Tbsp fresh parsley minced
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, toss the sweet potatoes with the melted coconut oil and toss to coat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cumin, curry powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the sweet potato wedges and toss until all wedges are lightly coated.
  • Arrange the sweet potato wedges on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. For crispier wedges, do not overcrowd.
  • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast for 30-35 minutes until the sweet potatoes are golden brown and crispy around the edges. Flip once halfway through the cooking process to brown both sides.
  • While the sweet potatoes are roasting, mix the coconut yogurt with lemon juice, dill, and parsley in a small bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and place in the refrigerator to chill.
  • Once browned, remove the sweet potato wedges from the oven and sprinkle generously with salt. Let cool slightly before serving with the herbed coconut yogurt dip. Enjoy!
