Hey! Happy Wednesday everyone! This week let’s talk about thyme and it’s health benefits.
Thyme is one of those hard-working herbs we don’t think a lot about which is a shame because it can amp up the flavor of pesto, poultry and fish rubs, soups, casseroles, and stews.
Thyme is a member of the mint family and it’s been used in folk medicine for centuries.
It has natural antimicrobial qualities, plus it contains plant chemicals that are linked to better blood pressure, clearer skin, and boosting your mood.
Do you have any thyme on your spice rack?
Thyme-Roasted Sweet Potatoes Recipe
Healthy, crispy, and delicious, these roasted sweet potatoes are going to be a favorite.
They go with just about any meal – from chicken and steak to sandwiches and wraps.
TIP: Double the recipe for leftovers.
Thyme-Roasted Sweet Potatoes
(makes 6 servings)
2 lbs (900 grams) sweet potatoes cut in ½-inch (1 cm) square cubes
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp each Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp dried thyme
Preheat your oven to 450ºF/230ºC. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
In a large bowl, toss together all the ingredients, making sure they are all well coated – it will help ensure the potato gets crispy!
Spread the potatoes on the baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, remove from the oven and turn the potatoes over using a spatula. Return to the oven for another 15-20 minutes until they are done (crispy on the outside, tender on the inside).
Love and light,
READY TO GET HEALTHIER!
