Roasted Parmesan Garlic Sweet Potatoes

Roasted Parmesan Garlic Sweet Potatoes

I have talked a bit lately about having great lunch options, whether you have the time to throw something easy together or you’re just having leftovers.

My go-to lunch as of now is chicken and a sweet potato. Now, that might sound kind of boring, but there are different (and easy) ways to mix up these dishes that will keep you happy, full and on track for your fitness goals.

I tend to find one thing and stick to it for a while, but then I get bored and have to mix it up… These roasted parmesan garlic sweet potatoes are a great way to spice it up and keep your tastebuds happy! 🙂

  6. Place into the oven for 30-40 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  7. Once fully cooked and browned, sprinkle with remaining 1 tbsp. Parmesan (and more salt and pepper if needed).

Note: To make the potatoes more crispy you can add more oil when you are tossing, but that will up the calories and fat… You just have to account for that.
