Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

Don't these look good in that "Gimme carbon, baby" way?

They were! Paired with dark beer and some of this homemade split pea soup...

...these Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges were to die for. Literally, because I couldn't stop eating them and felt my arteries harden.

Well, harden may be an exaggeration. Because these guys are simply roasted in high-quality olive oil, garlic, metabolism-boosting chili pepper, and a spice-salt blend mix from a friend (Penzey's Northwoods Fire Seasoning) - thanks, T!

Here's the best part: they are SO easy to make! Don't have sweet potatoes? You can substitute another tuber, but you'll miss out on the heavenly spicy-sweet-salty ratio that makes these guys out of this world.

Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

- Peel and chop sweet potatoes into happy wedges
- Dump some garlic, chili peppers, salt (or Penzey's spice blend), and cracked pepper into a food processor and whirrrr
- Pour over wedges on a baking sheet, toss in olive oil
- Bake at ~375 F for 30-40 minutes...however you like your C (carbon)

(Thanks to Deb for the idea!)
