These savory roasted sweet potatoes are seasoned with fresh herbs and served with a creamy rosemary garlic aioli!
How do you like your sweet potatoes? Do you like them sweet or do you like them savory? I personally like them savory, unless they are in a sweet bread. When I discovered that you can serve savory sweet potatoes, I liked sweet potatoes.
Since then I usually bake my sweet potatoes and serve them with a simple ranch dressing. By baking the sweet potato it still satisfies Craig because he prefers his sweet and will top his with a simple cinnamon sugar.
Today I have another wonderful way for us savory lovers to enjoy our sweet potato, roasted sweet potatoes with rosemary garlic aioli! Roasted sweet potatoes are quite easy to make – I also ended up adding purple fingerling potatoes and golden potatoes. But the rosemary garlic aioli is so good
poured drizzled over the potatoes. I couldn’t get enough.
