You guys, I already know we are going to keep these vegan roasted sweet potato rounds on repeat all season long. Whole 30, paleo, a stupidly easy recipe for a fall side dish or appetizer everyone is sure to love. The perfect addition to your Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner and any cold winter day.

All you need is a hot oven, some thick sliced sweet potatoes, just a little olive oil and  lots of deeply flavorful spices. Toss everything together, roast for about 20 minutes and it’s done! Lightly sweet and savory perfection!


Remember to season your potatoes very well all over, use your hands for best coverage but do this just before throwing them in the oven. This way they end up with a nicely seasoned lightly charred crispy crust and tender interior. The best of both world I tell ya!

    SO TASTY!!! I used the brown sugar recipe for these. They were roasted absolutely perfectly! Next time I’ll use regular potatoes as you noted. I’m sure they’re going to be just as perfect. Thank you so much, I’ve had a hard time finding a recipe that didn’t over or under cook the potatoes. Your timing was literally spot on!

    I went looking for a spicy sweet potato round recipe and tried these. OMG, they were absolutely incredible! I made them almost exactly as instructed. I added a little extra red pepper flake (and accidentally extra paprika because I had a clump and dumped it everywhere, haha). After I pulled them out of the oven, I drizzled just a little bit of honey over the sweet potatoes because I love the combo of honey and paprika. Thanks for this lovely recipe.

    Great recipe! I love simple. The recipes where you have to peel, shred, shape, etc. are not for me! I don’t have the time. Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Hi Devin, you could always just make as much as you’ll eat. Tough they save well in the fridge they won’t be quite the same when reheated. I would suggest reheating on a cast iron plate/skillet with a tiny lug of olive oil. Enjoy!

  4. Are the sweet potato rounds cut 1 1/2″ thick? They don’t look that thick or is the potato supposed to be that diameter?

    1. Yes they are Kathy, photos can be deceiving but they are pretty thick. You can cut them thinner If you like, but I wouldn’t go any less than 3/4″ thick, and make sure to check on them sooner so the don’t burn. Have a great week!
