  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled cut into wedges
  • 2 red onions, peeled cut into wedges
  • 1/2 lemon, zest and juice
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp ground fennel
  • 1/4 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 50g feta cheese


Step 1

Preheat oven to 230°C.

Step 2

Put sweet potatoes and onions into a bowl and toss with lemon juice and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle all the spices over the veggie mixture and toss until all the vegetables are coated with the seasoning mix.

Step 3

Spray a large baking tray with non-stick spray or mist with olive oil. Spread the vegetables out on the baking tray. Roast in the oven for about 15 minutes, then flip them over.

Step 4

Roast 15 minutes more, then flip them over again. Roast 10-20 minutes more, or until the sweet potatoes and onions are both nicely browned and sweet potatoes are soft. Total roasting time will be 40-50 minutes, depending on the size of the sweet potatoes, your pan, and the oven.

Step 5

Season with salt and fresh-ground black pepper as desired, sprinkle with crumbled Feta, and serve garnished with fresh rosemary and lemon zest.
