Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds

Here is a quick and easy side dish that is definitely kid-friendly.  I made this last week with the help of my 3-year-old grandson who is known to be a picky eater. (Please excuse the picture - I am not a photographer and the subject had a hard time staying still!)

We just did one potato since it was only the two of us. We started with a much-washed sweet potato (who got a few extra washes before we started).  I peeled it, cut it into 1/4 inch slices and Augustine put the slices into a baggie with a little coconut oil and shook them up to coat each slice. He then carefully laid them out in a single layer on a parchment-paper lined cookie sheet and I sprinkled them with cinnamon. We roasted them in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes, turning them over after 10 minutes.

I ate 3 pieces, and Augustine ate about 6 for lunch, leaving some leftover so that Mommy could taste his masterpiece when she got home from work.  Over the next hour or so, he went back and ate all but one piece (saved for Mommy) and liked them just as well cold.

They were really good with the coconut oil and cinnamon, but you could definitely experiment with other fats and seasonings.  Check out the original post here.
