We discovered this method looking for healthy alternatives to our usual Christmas/Thanksgiving side dishes. They are so good and filling! This is great as a breakfast hash brown substitute or a side dish to dinner. Mix with other root vegetables to create a more colorful (and delicious) plate, but it will change calorie count.

I really enjoyed this dish. Unfortunately there is snow covering my garden herbs this time of year so I resorted to using dried thyme leaves and rosemary (I ground the rosemary more fine in my coffee grinder). I didn't measure the seasonings just sprinkled to taste. Very good! As others noted it did take more than 20 minutes to roast - about 40-45 minutes to get a tender bite. The sweetness of the potato combined with the savory herbs was perfect! I love the coconut oil also. Yum! I will make this again. Read More

Wow. Way too much rosemary and thyme. This would be a marvelous recipe if one cut those measurements in half though. Unlike other reviewers I didn't have any issue with the cooking time. Perhaps I cut my potatoes smaller and the spices would have been less overpowering if I had cut them larger? Read More

My friend made these for our Thanksgiving dinner this year. We really enjoyed these - a great change from the overly sweet sweet potato tradition which I don't touch!! Her husband had picked up virgin coconut oil - I would probably use refined - or a mix of the two - the coconut flavor was just a little strong for me - though my friend really liked it... Read More

I've never cared for sweet potatoes. Came across this recipe and decided to try one more time. I LOVE this recipe. They were delicious! I cooked them exactly as the recipe instructed and they were perfect. I've made them several times now. A keeper! Read More

Delicious! I left it in the oven for 45 minutes after reading the other reviews. Didn't measure anything but I'm sure I used more rosemary and lots more coconut oil - about a tablespoon. Read More

It did take a lot longer for my oven to cook. I would estimate about 45 minutes or so. I didn't have rosemary so I used basil and I added in some small white potatoes to the mix. I loved it but would have loved it just as it was written!! Read More

This is perfect for my fitness meal prep. I used dried herbs (1 dried to 3 fresh ratio) and it's excellent. I'll go back to this again and again. Read More

will definitely take much longer than 20 minutes in the oven with a fresh potato. But if you nuke it first to soften the center a bit you will have great and speedy results! Read More
