Onions, dill, and caraway seeds give flavor to a lot of Polish dishes. The twist with this dish is applying those flavors to a vegetable you don’t often find on a Polish menu: sweet potato. This recipe is very easy to make but feels like a restaurant quality side thanks to a punch of anise flavor from the caraway seeds.



  • 3 sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 small white onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons caraway seeds, toasted
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 sprigs dill, finely chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes (or yams), onions, oil, and caraway seeds, and season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Spread mixture on a baking sheet and roast for 30–40 minutes, until lightly browned and tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer sweet potatoes to a serving platter. Garnish with chopped dill and serve.
