Thyme-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

20 Nov

Here is a wonderful sweet potato recipe just in time for Thanksgiving. My daughter and I tested some holiday recipes and this on was wonderful. The Southerns typically make sweet potato soufflé, which is loaded with fat and sugar. We would rather save those calories for dessert and have healthier alternative for sweet potatoes.

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2 inch rounds
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1/3 cup fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbs of olive oil

Preheat oven to 425  F. In large bowl, combine the potatoes, oil and salt. Arrange potatoes in single layer on a baking sheet. Place on top rack of oven and roast 30 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the rest of the ingredients together. After 30 minutes toss the potatoes with the seasoning mix and bake 10 more minutes.
