Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I find that roasting almost any vegetable in the oven makes it delicious. You don't even have to do much to it. But it does take time so if you can multi-task you can do this!
I used to think I didn't like sweet potatoes because I didn't care for mashed sweet potatoes with maple syrup and brown sugar covered in browned marshmallows. I know this sounds un-American, but I hate them. However, I have found there are so many other ways to prepare sweet potatoes that I do like. Roasting them is one way I do like.

Sweet potatoes were on sale for $.59/lb which is a steal and since sweet potatoes are lower in glycemic index and carbs than white potatoes I try to use them at least once a week. Especially when they are so cheap!
