I can hardly believe October is almost over! Seriously?! I see the Christmas decorations in stores, and it just seems crazy that it's already that time of year again. For me it's a toss up as far what I love the most about the holidays. I love the decorating, but I also really really love all the yummy food! That being said, I don't love to spend all day in the kitchen. I love simple dishes that are deliciously satisfying but don't take too much time prepare. These roasted garlic and rosemary sweet potatoes are ridiculously easy to make and I guarantee there will not be any leftovers..........people will be fighting for the last spoonful! They would be a great Thanksgiving day side dish but would also be wonderful on a Christmas morning breakfast buffet........it's a versatile dish that could be enjoyed any time of day!
The really great thing about this sweet potato dish is that you don't have to peel the potatoes! Woohoo! I really dislike the chore of peeling potatoes.......but if you want to peel yours - have at it.
- 3 medium sized sweet potatoes
- 5 to 6 cloves of garlic
- 2 to 3 stems of rosemary
- 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil
- salt to taste
Preheat your oven to 350. Wash, scrub and cube your sweet potatoes. Chop your garlic and rosemary. Put your cubed sweet potatoes in a large mixing bowl and add the chopped garlic and rosemary, then add the melted coconut oil.
Mix all together until every sweet potato is covered. Cover a baking pan with parchment paper and lay your sweet potatoes out evenly. Salt lightly over the pan. Pop it in the oven for about 25 to 30 minutes. Serve in a bowl - eat and enjoy!
I know it's not even Halloween yet, but just for fun - what's your favorite Thanksgiving side dish? I live for sweet potatoes......and I even love sweet potato pie a little bit more than pumpkin! Oh my goodness........is that a sin or what?!
