September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (80 votes)

Give ordinary roasted sweet potatoes a big flavor boost with this quick, Asian-inspired seasoning mix.

"These turned out great! They were definitely spicy, but not too bad--I personally probably wouldn't use any less chili garlic sauce, but if you don't like that much spiciness then you might want to use 1/2 or 3/4 of a tablespoon instead...

This is a great, really filling side dish. I like sweet potatoes much more with salty/spicy flavors than with the typical sweet. I found that they cooked much more evenly when I cut them into 1.5 inch cubes. Also, I would recommend lining your baking pan with tin foil, as the first time I made this, I didn't, and they all stuck to the pan.


These are fantastic! We absolutely love these sweet potatoes. They go well with baked fish or chicken dishes and are super easy to prepare!


Wow! This easy sweet potato recipe really perks up a meal. It is great with baked fish or chicken. I have made it a couple of times and have substituted chili paste when I don't have chili garlic sauce.


We can't stop eating these! This recipe is going to stay on my table for a long time to come. They're so simple and amazing. I've been skimping on the oil a bit (saving a few calories) and haven't noticed any problem.


This recipe meets all my requirements for a dish I will serve: healthy, tasty, attractive and very fast and easy to make and clean up. As soon as the original batch was gone, family members asked me to make more. We love spicy food but if you prefer less spiciness, you might want to modify the amount of chile-garlic sauce you use. For us, it's just right.
