In case you haven’t noticed, I love garam masala.  Just the smell of it is fabulous.  It is a spice that truly enhances anything.  With cinnamon, cardamom and cloves I don’t know how you would go wrong.

Growing up, we didn’t eat a lot of sweet potatoes, but nowadays when I’m at the store, to balance out the plate with a starch, I’m usually reaching for these things.  They have more fiber and potassium than white potatoes. And gobs more vitamin A with 18,800 IU per serving (vs. a measly 6 IU in white potatoes).  Plus, they taste better if you ask me.

To make:

First, preheat your oven to 450°F.

Then, scrub your taters really well.  No need to peel.  Take a really sharp knife and dice your potatoes to 1/2 inch cubes.

Toss the potatoes in a rimmed baking sheet with the olive oil, garam masala, cumin and salt and pepper.  You don’t need to do this in a bowl and then transfer.  You’ll just dirty up more dishes that way :).

Now bake for 13-15 minutes.  It goes quickly so keep an eye on them!  You can check to make sure they’re done by piercing one with a fork.

Serve immediately.  By the way, these things make great leftovers and they’re perfect in the sweet potato hash, which you could definitely throw together quickly the next morning for sure.
