This is one of my Mum's recipes - she said she would disown me if i didn't give her credit!!
6 yams or sweet potatoes - peeled and sliced into thick rounds
4 tbs olive oil
6 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1/2 cup fresh thyme
1 tsp red pepper flakes
salt to taste
Serves about 8
Heat oven to about 450F
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix, making sure the potatoes are well coated with the oil mixture.
Roast for about 40-50 mins or until done.
