Curry Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges
Roasting usually brings out the natural sweetness of vegetables. So why did a vegetable with sweet in its name turn watery and wan when roasted?
Why This Recipe Works
Elevating our Curry Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges on a wire rack helped to dry them out instead of letting them roast in their own juices, which yielded wet and soggy sweet potatoes. To crisp them even more, we used a preheated baking sheet for the second phase of cooking. Left unpeeled, our Curry Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges became tough and leathery. Ridding the potatoes of their chewy skins solved the problem.
