Roasted Sweet Potatoes or Yams

Sweet potatoes seem to be around all year long - at least here in Arizona. They are as versatile as ordinary potatoes but apparently are much better for you.
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.

  1. Roasted sweet potato has got to be one of my favorite foods but I never have used the red pepper flakes, just the olive oil and garlic. I will have to try it. Thanks to your mother for the recipe.
