This month we showcase our recipe for Thyme Roasted Sweet Potatoes. Ingredients 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2“ [1.25 cm] thick rounds 3 tablespoons [45 ml] olive oil 5 large garlic cloves, pressed or minced 1/3 cup [80 ml] fresh thyme leaves (plus sprigs for garnish) 1 teaspoon [5 ml] kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon [3 ml] hot red pepper flakes Preheat the oven to 450 F [230 C]. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all the ingredients and toss with the sweet potatoes. Arrange the potato slices in a single layer on a heavy baking sheet. Place on a rack in the top half of the oven and roast until tender and slightly browned, about thirty five minutes. Pierce a thick slice to be sure they’re ready. Serve warm or at room temperature.
