Curry Spiced Sweet Potatoes and Onions

How is it December yet? I am so excited that it is here but wow. What. A. Year.

I have been on a sweet potato kick recently. My cheat food for the past few years has been sweet potato fries. I LOVE the little salty, sweet, fried in oil guys. I fairly order them for a few obvious and not so obvious reasons: lots of salt and oil but have you thought about the oil they are fried in? The same oil that fries chicken fingers, fish sticks, and who knows what else... maybe a twinkie or two. Also there is a good chance that oil has been around for a while....

Anyways back to be positive. I make various versions of sweet potato fries at home. This past week it was cold (for Florida) and was craving curry powder to warm me up because I refuse to turn the heat on. Sorry Geoff, grab your snuggie (or build me a fire place! ah. yes I went there).

I will admit these roasted sweet potatoes may not look like anything special but they are good. Trust me. Better than 6 month old fish fry oil seasoned SP fries.

Curry Spiced Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Onions

2 large sweet potatoes, chopped into inch pieces
2 small yellow onions or half of a large one, chopped
1 teaspoon curry powder
EVVO spray
Salt if desired

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Spray baking pan with olive oil. Spread sweet potatoes and onions across the pan and spray with additional olive oil. Sprinkle the curry powder over the vegetables and season with salt if desired.

Roast until brown making sure to stir every ten minutes to prevent burning or sticking.

This is simple and can be made with whatever desired seasonings you prefer. After all of this sweet potato talk I plan on making sweet potato fries tomorrow night. I am thinking maple syrup and cinnamon.

So 6petals house crashed my casa right before Thanksgiving and just posted this cute post yesterday: peek-inside-at-ms-pink-strings-home  Love her and love her shop/blog.

.live creatively well.
