Roasted Sweet Potatoes Recipe!
Here's a recipe for some roasted sweet potatoes that I of course, naturally love.
Roasted Parmesan Sweet Potatoes
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed into half inch cubes
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2-3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, finely grated (I use fresh but this is a personal preference)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (personal preference, not a must have)
Cayenne pepper to taste (yay for a little spicy in your potatoes!)
Salt and pepper to taste
Go ahead and preheat your oven to 400 degrees and position oven rack to middle position. Line the bottom of a large baking sheet with aluminum foil (this is super important so that you don't have more of a mess after you eat this pan full of deliciousness).
In a medium sized bowl, place the prepared, cubed sweet potatoes, garlic, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, dried thyme. Distribute the ingredients evenly to cover the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the sweet potato mixture to the prepared baking sheet and spread out the potatoes so that they are in a single layer.
You will want to roast this panin oven for about 40 minutes or until the sweet potatoes can be easily pierced with a sharp knife. Set the oven to broil and broil until the tops of the sweet potatoes start to brown, about 8-10 minutes (keep an eye on the potatoes when broiling, as your time may differ and you want to take care not to burn them).
Most importantly, serve these immediately. This amount should feed 3 to 4 people, however it all depends on what the size of the potatoes are to determine how many people will have full stomachs.
Enjoy these as they are one of my favorite additions to my dinner!
Love & light, Maria
