Rosemary and Garlic Roasted Sweet Potatoes

While I enjoy spending a long time in the kitchen preparing fancy meals, I definitely appreciate those dishes that are quick “go-to” staples, the ones I can just throw in the oven after a long day. This recipe is perfect for that. Just chop, bake, and season. So simple, yet so good! 
Sweet potatoes go with any fish or meat dish, and the leftovers are awesome for breakfast the next morning! Just fry up some eggs and you have a quick and nutritious breakfast. I always keep some sweet potatoes on hand for when I’m at a loss for what to make with dinner.
Not to mention sweet potatoes are loaded with nutritious compounds like vitamins A and C, potassium, manganese, vitamin B5 and B6, and fiber. So feel good about choosing these guys as part of your healthy diet 🙂
