  • pinch cayenne


  1. Pierce holes in the sweet potato with a knife or fork, and put it in the oven at 300-350F for 10 minutes.
  2. Next, pierce holes in the carrots, zucchini and onion, and put them in the oven as well for another 20-40 minutes, or until the sweet potato is fully soft. The cooking time will depend on the size of your sweet potato. Add the garlic in the last 10 minutes.
