Ingredients

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled (if desired) and sliced into thin 1/2-inch (thick) strips
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 garlic cloves finely minced or pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped basil

creamy feta dip

  • 8 ounce feta block, crumbled
  • 3/4 cup full-fat or 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. Spray the rack with nonstick spray. Set aside. Heat butter in a small saucepan (or the microwave) until just melted. Remove from any heat and then add in garlic cloves, stirring well
  • Rinse sweet potatoes well with water then pat completely dry with towels. Add to a large bowl and toss with olive oil, garlic butter, salt and pepper. Toss very well to coat. Spread sweet potatoes out in a single layer on the wire rack. Bake for 20 minutes, remove and toss, then bake for 15-20 minutes longer. Sometimes I check within 10 minutes and toss again, and occasionally after the 15-20 minutes, I give them another 5-10 or so. I know using a wire rack can be a pain but it really helps crisp all sides. Try not to crowd the sweet potatoes and if necessary, use a second sheet/rack.
  • Remove and let cool slightly. Remove the wire rack or place on a large plate and cover in parmesan and fresh herbs, tossing and tossing to coat. If needed, season a bit more too. You can even add some more garlic butter if you wish. Dip in creamy feta!

  • Combine all ingredients together and mix well. I took a bit of the herb/parmesan topping from the baking sheet and threw it on top!
