Garlic Roasted Purple Potatoes
5 to 8 cloves garlic
2 lb. purple sweet potatoes, rinsed but not peeled
1 tbsp. smoked paprika
1 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 large lemon
Ground black pepper, to taste
Himalayan sea salt to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mince or press garlic and put in a large bowl. While garlic “rests,” chop sweet potatoes into a medium dice, making sure pieces are similar size for even cooking. Be sure to leave the skin on—it is very thin and is packed with nutrients.
Add Italian seasoning and fresh lemon juice to the bowl with garlic to make a paste. Toss sweet potatoes into the bowl and mix well to ensure all pieces are well-coated. If mixture is too dry, add more lemon juice.
Sprinkle with pepper and roast until tender—check after approximately 35 minutes and then every 10 minutes until ready, Season with additional pepper and a sprinkle of salt, to taste.
