Default sweet potato recipe that will work for the fat smash AND the rest of the fam

so tonight i decided to make sweet potatoes. my chickens love them and so does my hubby. and they're good for you to boot! but i didn't have alot of time and i was really concerned about how long it would take to bake them off. so i decided to make mashed sweet potatoes. but then at the last minute, i googled roasted sweet potatoes. this led me to epicurious (usually my first choice. i'm not sure why i went to google) and a recipe for thyme roasted sweet potatoes.

well let me tell you that it was one of the best side dishes (and by far the easiest!) i have ever made! in fact, we're still eating them cold!!!

i used 5 sweet potatoes, about 6 cloves of garlic (i can't help myself!), didn't use the red pepper flakes and used fleur de sel (because i have it). oh! and i also used dried thyme, about 1 T.


Thyme-Roasted Sweet Potatoes Epicurious | November 2005


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


Preheat oven to 450F. In large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and toss. Arrange potato slices in single layer on heavyweight rimmed baking sheet or in 13x9-inch baking dish. Place on top rack of oven and roast until tender and slightly browned, about 40 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, garnished with thyme sprigs.
