Oil-Free Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Oil-Free Roasted Sweet Potato Coins with Creamy Lime Dip

These deliciously-seasoned, roasted sweet potatoes are oil-free and irresistibly delicious.

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 3 medium to large sweet potatoes)

 water

2  teaspoons salt           

1 teaspoon granulated garlic

1 teaspoon sweet paprika

1/2   teaspoon granulated onion

1/8   teaspoon crushed dried basil

2 teaspoons potato starch (or 1 tsp rice starch + 1 tsp tapioca starch)

2 teaspoons arrowroot powder

1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Scrub sweet potatoes under running water. (Peeling is optional. I don’t peel mine.)
  2. Slice the sweet potatoes into rounds just under 1/4-inch thick.
  3. Put slices in a bowl and cover with cold water. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of the salt over the top. Gently mix. Allow to soak for 1 hour or up to overnight.
  4. When ready to roast the sweet potatoes, pour the water and sweet potatoes into a colander, and rinse with fresh water.
  5. Pat sweet potato slices dry. (They don’t need to be perfectly dry, but excess moisture should be gone.)
  6. Preheat oven to 425°F
  7. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  8. Place half of the sweet potato rounds into a very large, rimmed baking pan (a very large, wide bowl will also work).
  9. Combine seasonings and starch in a small bowl or container. Dust sliced sweet potatoes with half of the seasoning/starch mix. Mix with hands to distribute starch mixture evenly over sweet potato rounds. The idea is to get a whisper thin coating of the starch on the potatoes, not to cover them in starch. The starch should be barely visible on them.
  10. Distribute sweet potato coins single layer onto parchment paper. Spray tops of sweet potatoes lightly with cooking spray.
  11. Repeat with remaining sweet potato rounds.
  12. Bake at 425°F for 15 to 20 minutes.Serve hot with Creamy Lime Dip.
