For my side dish tonight I decided that I needed to use the sweet potato that I had bought earlier in the week. Instead of doing the standard roasting of it, I wanted a little more excitement. I did a simple google search of "roasted sweet potatoes" and found this great recipe. It called for 40 minutes but after checking them at 20, mine were just fine. This is a great alternative to the traditional sugary sweet potato that we all love. Sorry, I don't have a picture on this one. They were gone too fast!
- 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch-thick rounds
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 large garlic cloves, minced
- 1/3 cup fresh thyme leaves, plus 6 thyme sprigs for garnish
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
