Here’s a classic side dish: sweet potatoes, roasted to perfection, but pumped up with more flavor for the adults at the table, thanks to the ground cumin in the mix. For a good crunchy contrast, consider using kosher or other coarse-grained salt in the easy “rub” you sprinkle on the sweet potatoes. Pair these sweet and savory spuds with pork tenderloin or pork chops for dinner or eggs for breakfast. We call for peeling the potatoes, but you can skip that step to save time. Just be sure you scrub them well with a brush before cutting them into quarters.
