I’ve become a regular at Simone’s one of my favorite bars, and almost always order their delicious Vegan Black Bean Burger on Pretzel Roll with Sweet Potato Fries.
Sunny Savory Sweet Potatoes
I’m in love with sweet potatoes. It doesn’t take much to make them good as well as enjoy. I always try to have the kitchen stocked with them and love the smell of sweet potatoes baking away in the oven. Here’s a simple savory way to prepare them:
- 2-4 medium peeled and sliced sweet potatoes
- 2 cloves of diced garlic
- 2 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tsp. of cumin
- 1 tsp. of sea salt
- 1 tsp. of pepper
- sprinkle of fresh parsley
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix in the olive oil, garlic, cumin together with a fork. Then add in the sweet potatoes and mix together well. In a baking dish, place and spread out the sweet potatoes as well as possible. If you sliced up to 4 sweet potatoes, you can bake them in another pan. I like to slice them about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle on sea salt and pepper, then top off with fresh parsley. Bake for 20 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender and a bit crispy on the edges. Serve as the main or side dish!
