WEDGES OF SWEET GOODNESS #CARROT/SWEET POTATO WEDGES

It was like Christmas in September. My kitchen emitted a bouquet of warm and aromatic flavors that enveloped my entire abode. Guys, I’m talking about the co-mingling of paprika and cinnamon sprinkled on  wedges of carrot and sweet potatoes. With a drizzle of canola oil and a pinch of sea salt along with the earthy spices of cinnamon and paprika, my root vegetables were ready for a piping hot 400 degree oven.

Roasting helps to bring out the  natural sugars within these root vegetables which are loaded with beta carotene and other great nutrients.  As I watched the golden wedges did their thing, my taste-buds became super-excited as they awaited the final dish. I gave the entire roasting approximately 40 minutes and turned them half-way through the cooking process.

Wedges of carrots and sweet potatoes were crispy on the exterior and smooth on the interior. They were like candy to my palate. I was happy.
