Happy New Year everyone! I don’t know about you but I am so glad 2016 is over and I am ready for bigger and better things in 2017. One thing I can promise is to continue to share healthy and delicious recipes here on Spoons and Stilettos. Our first recipe this year is simple and tasty sweet potato wedges. Why I haven’t shared this recipe is very surprising to me especially since I love to make this dish all the time. Sweet potato wedges are a great alternative to regular potatoes and they also look great on a plate.
The key to delicious sweet potato wedges is to keep it simple and not add too many seasonings because sweet potatoes are already packed with flavor. All you need is some garlic, a little cumin and you have got your self the best sweet potato wedges. In addition to being tasty they are great served with anything from grilled meats, veggies and seafood. As you can see above I served mine with fish, asparagus and cucumber salsa.

Wondering how to achieve a wedge shape, its pretty simple. All you have to do is cut the sweet potato in half then cut the half into another half. Not sure that makes sense but that is the best way I could think to describe it.
