Recipe by

This is a delicious, elegant way to serve the humble sweet potato. I first enjoyed the dish at an Easter lunch with friends. When I asked the secret behind the great flavor, my friend told me it was the Herbes de Provence seasoning, a unique blend of dried herbs found in southern France. Something about the combination of sweet potatoes with this seasoning works supremely well. Easy, healthy and delicious, these sweet potatoes make the perfect side dish for any meat and add a French flair to your holiday table. For more great recipes, please visit xoxo~Jamie

    ** Tip for prepping ahead: Unlike russet or Idaho potatoes, sweet potatoes and yams do not turn brown or lose texture on exposure to air. Simply peel and cube potatoes ahead of time and refrigerate in a BPA free ziplcoc bag. When ready to roast, pour them into a bowl and season with extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and all seasonings. Then spread on a foil lined aluminum baking sheet. If you want to place the baking sheet in the fridge, you can do this also. Just allow to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before baking.
