Thyme Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Oh my. My recent love affair with the sweet potato continues with this recipe. You see, I had never had a sweet potato before Mr. Gooch came into my life. Well, other than a taste of what I remember to be a sickly sweet pie at some point. This slightly savory version of the baked sweet potato is right up my alley. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

This recipe for thyme roasted sweet potatoes from Epicurious.com is right up my alley.

Thyme Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients
4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch-thick rounds (I cut mine thinner and into half rounds)
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup fresh thyme leaves, plus 6 thyme sprigs for garnish (I used 5 teaspoons of dried thyme)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (I added a bit more since I like a little heat)
Directions
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 13x9-inch baking dish.
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.
