Roast sweet potatoes02This is my new version of sweet potato fries.  The rounds roast more evenly and get a nice crispy crust on the bottom.  Mmmm. Good.


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch thick rounds
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

Roast sweet potatoes01

Preheat oven to 450°F. In large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and toss. Arrange potato slices in single layer on heavyweight rimmed baking sheet or in 13×9-inch baking dish and sprinkle a tad bit more salt over them.  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.
