  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp olive oil

  2. In a small mixing bowl whisk together cornstarch, salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder. 
  3. Place sliced sweet potatoes in a large mixing bowl. 
  4. Toss sweet potatoes with olive oil then pour cornstarch mixture over sweet potatoes and toss to evenly coat. 
  5. Remove baking sheet from oven then pour sweet potatoes onto baking sheet and spread into an even layer working to keep a little space between them (careful pan will be hot!).
