Rosemary Rubbed Sweet Potatoes

ChristmasCountdown_03

Sweet potatoes have quickly become one of my favorite foods. Growing up my family would often have sweet potatoes on Sundays. Though I love sweet potatoes with butter and all the fixings, I found there are tons of ways to prepare them. This recipe truly highlights how delicious a sweet potato really is without all of the added butter and sugar. This is a great complement to an earthy meal and is vegetarian and vegan friendly.

INSTRUCTIONS
4 large sweet potatoes, cubed
4 teaspoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of fresh chopped rosemary
3 tablespoons of brown sugar (or agave nectar)
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon of black pepper
Cooking spray

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place diced sweet potatoes in a large bowl. Drizzle olive oil and toss.
  3. Add rosemary, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Toss so that there is an even coat on sweet potatoes.
  4. Let potatoes marinate for 30 minutes before baking.
  5. Spray a large cooking sheet with cooking spray. Evenly distribute potatoes on cooking sheet and place in the oven.
  6. Cook potatoes for 20 minutes and flip and cook for an additional 15 minutes, or until tender.
