Ready in: 45minutes
2 1/2lbssweet potatoes, peeled if desired and diced into 1-inch cubes (about 3 medium)
3Tbspolive oil, plus more for serving
3 - 4clovesgarlic, minced
1 1/2Tbspchopped fresh thyme leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2Tbspchopped fresh parsley leaves
1/3cupfinely grated parmesan
Melted butter or more olive oil, optional
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small mixing bowl, stir together olive oil, garlic, and thyme. Place potatoes in a mound on baking sheet, pour mixture over potatoes and season with salt and pepper to taste and toss to evenly coat. Spread into an even layer.
Roast in preheated oven until tender, tossing once halfway through, about 30 minutes total (you can broil during last 1 - 2 minutes near broiler for more golden brown potatoes).
Remove from oven, drizzle and toss with more olive oil, then immediately sprinkle with parmesan (if you'd like to fully melt the parmesan just return to broiler for about 1 minute). Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
Make sure the sweet potatoes are distributed evenly on the baking sheet. If you overcrowd the sheet, the potatoes will steam instead of roast.
For more golden brown potatoes, broil them for the last 1 to 2 minutes in the oven.
If you'd like to fully melt the Parmesan cheese before serving these potatoes, return them to the oven and broil them for 1 minute.
