Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

(recipe, Katie Hickey)


  1. 1 tsp. coriander seeds
  2. ½ tsp. fennel seeds
  3. ½ tsp. dried oregano
  4. ¼ to ½ tsp. dried hot red pepper flakes
  5. 1 tsp. kosher salt
  6. 2 lb. medium sweet potatoes
  7. 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coarsely grind coriander, fennel, oregano, and red pepper flakes in an electric coffee/spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle. Stir together spices and salt.
  2. Cut potatoes lengthwise into 1-inch wedges. Toss wedges with oil and spices in a large roasting pan and roast in middle of oven 20 minutes. Turn wedges over with a spatula and roast until tender and slightly golden, 15 to 20 minutes more.
