In honor of Get Cooking Month, I'm sharing a old standard in my home--roasted sweet potatoes. I love this recipe because they are easy, tasty and the kids can help.

First, let's take a moment to sing the praises of the sweet potato--they aren't just for Thanksgiving! These beauties are loaded with beta carotene (vitamin A), high in vitamin C, a good source of fiber and naturally fat-free.

2 large sweet potatoes
1/4 olive oil
1/2 tsp. rosemary
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Slice the sweet potatoes in thin round discs.
  3. Have your kidsadd the sliced potatoes and the all the other ingredients to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Mix well.
  5. Lay sweet potatoes flat on a cookie sheet (spread them out so they cook evenly)
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.

For crispier results. broil the potatoes for a minute when done! They are great with fish, chicken and kids love them. Makes about 4 servings.
