Cilantro-Lime Sweet Potatoes

I LOVE these and they are a little different spin on the sweet potato fries!

2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled, and cut into 3/4 inch pieces
3 TB olive oil
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp finely grated fresh lime zest
1 TB fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Put oven rack in lower third of oven and preheat to 425. Toss sweet potatoes with 2 TB oil and 1/4 tsp salt in a shallow baking pan in a single layer. Roast, stirring halfway through, roasting until tender, about 25 minutes total. Stir together cayenne, zest, and remaining 1/2 tsp salt in a small bowl. Whisk together lime juice and remaining TB oil in a medium bowl, then add potatoes. Sprinkle with cayenne mixture and cilantro, stirring gently to combine! They are DELISH!
