• 2 medium-sized sweet potatoes
• 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds
• 1 tablespoon of olive oil
• 1 teaspoon of paprika
• 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
• Salt and pepper to taste
• Fresh parsley or cilantro (optional, for garnish)
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
2. Scrub the sweet potatoes under running water to remove any dirt. Pat them dry with a kitchen towel.
3. Cut the sweet potatoes into bite-sized cubes. Try to make them as uniform as possible to ensure even cooking.
4. In a large bowl, combine the sweet potato cubes, olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Toss well to evenly coat the sweet potatoes with the seasonings.
5. Transfer the seasoned sweet potatoes onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread them out in a single layer, allowing space between the cubes for even browning.
6. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender and lightly golden brown. Remember to flip the cubes halfway through the cooking time for even browning.
7. While the sweet potatoes are baking, toast the hemp seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes. Stir them continuously to prevent burning. Once the seeds turn golden brown and emit a nutty aroma, remove them from the heat and set them aside.
8. Once the sweet potatoes are cooked, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly.
9. Transfer the roasted sweet potatoes to a serving dish and sprinkle them with the toasted hemp seeds. If desired, garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro to add a burst of freshness.
10. Serve the Sweet Potato and Hemp Delight as a side dish or enjoy it as a satisfying and nutritious snack. The sweet potatoes’ natural sweetness beautifully complements the nuttiness of the hemp seeds.
