Sweet potatoes are not only sweet, but also warm and stick-to-your-bones healthy. I love them prepared in all the ways: fries, roasted, casseroles, sweet, savory ... you name it! My daughter introduced me to a recipe that she says turns out every time and everyone loves! I've adapted it to create Herb & Parmesan Crusted Sweet Potatoes and my love for sweet potatoes has expanded even further!

One of the secrets to success is to toss the sweet potatoes with a starch. This starch could be corn starch (GMO free and organic, of course!), potato starch, arrowroot ... it all works.

You can use any herb that you want, of course. I like to match the herb to the other things I'm serving for dinner. That said, thyme is my absolute favorite! Always and forever. However, I think a mix of thyme, sage, and rosemary is amazing!

You can almost hear the crunch!

The secret is a bit of starch!

Put them in one layer and top them with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

  • 1 Tablespoons starch can use corn starch, potato starch, or arrowroot
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes I prefer the orange-fleshed ones
  • 2 Tablespoons avocado oil or other high heat point oil
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh herbs I love thyme, but sage and rosemary would be awesome!
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • Celtic sea salt & freshly ground pepper to season

Preheat the oven to 450 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut the sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch rounds and toss in a large bowl with the starch to coat.
Drizzle the oil over and toss again to coat.
Add the herbs, cheese, salt and pepper and toss once again.
Place the rounds on the prepared baking sheet in one layer and put it in the oven.
Roast for 50 minutes, turning the rounds over halfway through. You want them fully cooked, crispy, and golden.
