Sweet Potatoes and Pineapple recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Roasted pineapple and sweet potatoes? This sounded too interesting not to try. I had half a pineapple left in the refrigerator. So, I happily made this the very same night that I saw the recipe in this month’s issue of Everyday Food.

I served this with simple ham steaks and it was absolutely perfect.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Pineapple

5 from 2 votes
Recipe adapted from and with thanks to Everyday Food


  • 2 medium size sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1" pieces (next time I won't bother peeling them)
  • 1/2 of a huge pineapple or 1 medium pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into 1" pieces
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or another flavorless oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • kosher salt to taste


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine the sweet potatoes and pineapple in a medium size bowl and drizzle with oil. Toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with spices and toss again. Spread the pieces across a greased baking sheet or a silpat mat lined baking sheet. Bake until the pieces are tender and starting to brown, approximately 30-35 minutes. Stir every 10-15 minutes. (I'm planning to cook mine a bit longer next time and allow the potatoes to begin to crisp a bit. These were delicious as they were, but I think they will be even better a bit more browned.)

    Pineapple goes well with orange veggies. I add pineapple to chicken and carrots, bake in one dish, and serve over rice. It's terrific. I'll bet your sweet potatoes and pineapple is just as wonderful!

    I just bought sweet potatoes to try out the sweet potato with vanilla bean… n here I see another sweet potato recipe… But I guess this will have to wait coz I'm still without an oven…

    It's great that grocery stores sell fresh cut pineapple, so you can make as much or as little as you want. I love ham, and this recipe is a great excuse to have it for dinner sooner than later.

    I haven’t tried this yet but plan to make it tomorrow. It’s exactly what I was looking for – a simple recipe with sweet potatoes and pineapple to go with a Hawaiian style chicken. I like this because it has no added sweetener.
    These ingredients are sweet enough on their own they don’t need other sweeteners and definitely NO MARSHMALLOWS!

    I baked my sweet potatoes in the micro oven and cooled them. Then I peeled and cut them easily. I reheated them and seasoned with cinnamon. They were a big hit.5 stars
