Spiced Sweet Potato Wedges Recipe

A fantastic accompaniment to grilled pork or roast chicken, these salty-sweet wedges also make a stealthily healthy snack for ravenous boys. The sweet potato truly is a super vegetable: it is packed with antioxidants and four times the daily recommendation of beta-carotene needed for healthy skin, hair, and eyesight. In several vegetable rating roundups, it consistently beat most other vegetables in overall nutritional power. No wonder it’s one of the first foods we feed to babies.
