yield: Makes 4 to 6 servings
active time: 10 min
total time: 45 min

Ingredients
• 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
• 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
• 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
• 1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
• 1 teaspoon kosher salt
• 2 lb medium sweet potatoes
• 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions
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.
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.

Nice and easy, right? There’s a bonus — all the health benefits you get. Take a look.

Sweet Potatoes are a power food. They are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They reduce the risk of cancer and osteoporosis, help lower cholesterol, and help protect against heart disease.

You can season sweet potatoes with apple or orange juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, or honey instead of butter. Sweet potatoes can be used in any recipe that calls for a white potato. They can be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place for up to three weeks. If refrigerated, they tend to lose their flavor.

Coriander helps relieve indigestion, gas, and diarrhea. Fennel is good for treating indigestion, food poisoning, and motion sickness. It helps with asthma, bronchitis, coughs, nausea, tuberculosis, and rheumatism. Both coriander and fennel are loaded with nutrients: calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, manganese, vitamins, and phytochemicals.
