A side dish doesn't have to be dull in appearance or flavor. It also can be healthy and easy to prepare!
4 - small sweet potatoes or 2 large, cut in half
A few sprigs of rosemary, thyme or whatever you have on hand (fresh is so much better than dried and easy enough to grow too!)
2 tbsp - vegetable oil
Salt to taste
Chives & yogurt for garnish (optional, really we didn't use any)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Slice the potatoes at 1/2 inch or less intervals, cutting three-quarters of the way down to the bottom. (Supposedly you can place chop sticks on either side and that will stop your knife from going through all the way--didn't completely work for me. Don’t worry too much if you cut all the way through, it’s not the end of the world!)
Brush vegtable oil on each potato, carefully fanning each slice to get into the grooves.
Sprinkle each potato with a sprig of fresh herbs (we used rosemary), and a dash of salt.
Cook for 45 minutes until the bottoms and edges are crisp and a knife pierces easily through the skin.
Serve warm and enjoy!
