I don’t know why I never thought of trying this during a holiday, because a huge batch of potatoes is always needed … but really, potatoes are great any time so just go for it. These sweet potatoes get tanged and jazzed up and are amazing right out of the oven or if they sit out for a potluck and are at room temp. Everyone is going to love these and be asking for this recipe, they are that good! Hope you get to enjoy these vegan and gluten-free Dijon Roasted Sweet Potatoes.
I don’t know about you but I love Dijon mustard. And roasting things. It doesn’t matter to me if the weather is turning hoooooot or not – roasting veggies in the oven is my most favorite (and easiest!) way to eat them. They always turn out so much sweeter and I love the crisp that happens. And I’m a little bit crazy because I love when they get a little bit burnt too. Just yum. And roasting sweet potatoes brings out that natural sweetness and adding savory flavors makes you think your going crazy with out how good they are! I love using Dijon in not just my salad dressing but also in my roasting as you can see in the below recipes – why? Because of the tang! Tang and roasting. I mean it doesn’t get any better than that!
Start by washing and scrubbing your sweet potatoes – peel if you want, but I don’t mind potato skin so I always leave them on. Chop the potatoes into mediumish like-size pieces. Mediumish because you want them to cook through in a short amount of time, and like-size so they all cook at the same speed. You don’t want big still-hard chunks. No one (not even me) likes to crunch through a potato. Dump all the potatoes into a large bowl. Mix all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl then dump over the potatoes. Mix until all the potatoes are coated, then dump on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes and they come out caramelized and oh so good.
