Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds

I'm always looking to create good and simple recipes.  These Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds could not be any simpler, and full of taste.  Instead of mashing the potatoes, I decided to just cut them in rounds and season with a little olive oil, salt and garlic.

During this time of year I like to cook different kinds of vegetables.  I love sweet potatoes, squash, rutabagas and parsnips.  These vegetables are always great as a side dish.

The sweet potatoes were tender inside and slightly sweet.  This was a great change from just baking them whole, because it created a soft crust that was full of flavor from the garlic.  

I love the colors, bright orange with these yellow marks...Perfect for this time of year.


3 garlic cloves minced
1/4 cup olive oil
2  pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, sliced and cut into 1/2 inch thick rounds
3/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375 Degrees F

Spread the sweet potatoes in one layer in a shallow baking pan. Combine the olive oil, minced garlic and salt, and spread over the sweet potatoes.  Make sure to season all of the rounds.   Bake until golden, for about 20-30 minutes.
