Roasted sweet potato medley

Fall is here and thus it is time to start roasting colorful root vegetables. I often mix sweet potatoes or yams with other types of potatoes. It's an easy side dish and leftovers are a great addition to salads the next day. This recipe is quick to prepare and beautiful to look at.

Servings: 4

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 large garnet yam (or other favorite type of sweet potato)
  • 1 pound assorted small potatoes (I used German fingerlings and small purple potatoes)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped herbs, such as sage, thyme and oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
  2. Peel sweet potato and dice into 1/2 inch chunks. 
  3. Wash small potatoes and cut in half, depending on size. 
  4. Mix potatoes in a bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper. 
  5. Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the chopped herbs. 
  6. Roast for 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
