Sweet potato side dish with spring herbs and garlic
Posted On March 13, 2021
This sweet potato dish goes perfectly with a roast chicken, but would also be great for breakfast with an egg. It’s versatile and easy and if you prefer your sweet potatoes savory can make an excellent holiday dish too. Now that it’s gardening season, herbs are readily available so experiment with all kinds!

Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into bite sized cubes. Add the oil, garlic, herbs and spices and mix well. Prepare a baking dish with parchment paper if cooking these by themselves. Place them into the oven, preheated to 400, for about 20-30 minutes, depending on how soft you like them. I added these to a chicken I had roasting for the last 30 minutes.
I am a mom of two and wife to a martial arts school owner, full-time social media professional and avid cook and gardener. I love creating recipes and involving my kids in the process. The food we cook is usually dairy-free and gluten-free, and sometimes paleo, but we make exceptions (ahem, sourdough bread). The “hippie” part of this blog comes into play in the ingredients we use—I’m pretty vigilant about the health of my family and you could even call me “crunchy.” The “modern” part is that I am busy! You won’t catch me making my own nut milk or churning butter (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I’m more than happy to take the shortcuts provided by our lovely grocery stores and online shopping —especially in the midst of this global pandemic.
