Looking for an easy, healthy side dish to make? Try Alicia Silverstone's Cuban-Style Roasted Sweet Potatoes


3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered (about 3 pounds)

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Fine sea salt to taste

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 large garlic clove, minced, 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Heat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.

Place the sweet potatoes in a medium bowl, toss with 2 tablespoons of the oil, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread the potatoes on the prepared baking sheet, and roast until they can be pierced easily with a knife but still offer some resistance, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes or so.

Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl, and toss with the garlic, lime juice, parsley, and remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Adjust the seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
