|Garlic Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes|
Sweet potatoes are not everyone's cup of tea, but here in Egypt it is a staple 'street' food, being sold on wooden carts with a mini furnace for roasting the tubers. You can get this cheap snack almost everywhere handed to you in a ripped piece of newspaper. The sweet, creamy, tongue burning Egyptian snack is not really used otherwise, other than a pudding.
We love roasted potatoes, so two Thanksgivings ago, I tried this and it was a hit. So simple to make yet so popular with everyone, I ended up making it in several dinner parties as well.
If you want to try something simple, or you want to just rev up your Thanksgiving menu, this recipe is a must try.
- Sweet potatoes, washed, peeled and cut into cubes [The amount isn't important, but 1 kg is about 4-6 servings]
