Sweet potato wedges piled on a white serving platter.

Sweet Potato Wedges

These subtly spiced, lightly crisped sweet potato wedges will have everyone clamoring for more–and, we dare say, no one guessing they’re healthful.

Two plates with burrata topped with asparagus, pine nuts, raisins, and prosciutto.
