California Sweet Potatoes

Print recipe

4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch-thick cubes
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup sliced California Almonds
4 large garlic cloves, minced
6 sprigs fresh thyme for garnish
1/3 cup fresh thyme leaves, plus
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except the sliced almonds and toss. Arrange potato slices into a single layer on a heavyweight rimmed baking sheet or in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Place on the top rack of the oven and roast until tender and slightly browned, about 40 minutes.

Stir together sweet potatoes and roasted almonds in a serving bowl and garnish with thyme sprigs. Serve warm.
