Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods. The tender and sweet flesh is slow roasted and then topped with a Moroccan infused medley of texture and colors.
Meatless Monday has never been so tasty or gorgeous.

Difficulty Level:

2 large sweet potatoes or yams

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 onion, diced

Juice of 1 lemon, optional

1/2 teaspoon paprika or smoked paprika, optional


1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange sweet potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pierce potatoes with a fork or knife to allow steam to vent.
