Roasted sweet potatoes potatoes are one of the best side dishes to pair with any meal. They’re rich in vitamins and nutrients and can be prepared in so many ways. Bake them with a few simple spices and herbs and serve them with a creamy whipped feta dip.

I love to garnish them with a drizzle of olive oil, hot honey and some crushed pistachios for an added crunch.

Herb Roasted Sweet Potatoes

What you’ll need to make roasted sweet potatoes:

  • Sweet potatoes– I used both orange and purple for a fun color combination
  • Shallots
  • Olive oil
  • Spices: salt, pepper, garlic powder
  • Herbs: fresh thyme and rosemary
  • Garnishes: homemade whipped feta, olive oil, hot honey, pistachios
  1. Chop the sweet potatoes into 1″ pieces and add them to a large sheet pan with the sliced shallots
  2. Toss everything in the olive oil, spices and herbs
  3. Bake on 425 F for 35-45 minutes. Bake time will vary depending on oven and sheet pan size
  4. Serve with homemade whipped feta dip and garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, hot honey and crushed pistachios

If preparing ahead of time, I suggest roasting the potatoes first, reheating them when ready to serve, then plating them onto the whipped feta. The feta dip is best served at room temperature since it may harden if refrigerated.

Leftovers will stay good in the fridge for up 3-4 days. To reheat, you can warm them in the oven or air-fryer.

  1. I am not a cook, but I made this for my husband and in-laws, and they said it tasted like something you’d eat at a gourmet restaurant. They devoured it! Thank you so much!!

  2. Served this side for thanksgiving, and it was a big hit- even among the picky eaters! I would put a smaller clove of garlic than what I used next time!
