Roasted sweet potatoes with thyme ( and they’re gluten-free!)

Filed in Gather Food Essential by on January 22, 2012 0 Comments

This is a fairly quick and easy dish to make, and it’s perfect for today’s chilly weather ( it was -5 when I got up).  The high heat makes the sweet potatoes even sweeter, and the thyme adds that lovely earthy flavor .  I often make these for my little granddaughter, who is on a strict gluten and dairy free diet, but mostly, I make them for a quick hot lunch for myself.

 

 

To make:

About 2 cups peeled sweet potato, cut into medium sized cubes

2 T. olive oil

1 teaspoon dried or fresh thyme

kosher salt and fresh pepper to your taste

 

Preheat oven to 425F ( you can also use a toaster oven, but keep an eye on it!)

Toss the sweet potatoes, olive oil, thyme, and salt and pepper in a bowl, then spread on a baking sheet.

Roast for 35-40 minutes, stirring once or twice to ensure even cooking.

Serve piping hot with another drizzle of olive oil.

Enjoy!
