For the Sweet Potatoes

  • 3 large Sweet potatoes peeled and sliced thin (1/4 inch thick)
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil infused with thyme and garlic infused is optional
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1/4 cup roasted red pepper sauce (see recipe link in post)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp chopped green onions for garnish

For the Infused Olive Oil

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic smashed
  • 1 fresh thyme sprig


For the sweet potatoes

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
  • Put sweet potato slices upright in a cast iron skillet and oil generously.
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Set small gobs of ghee on top of sweet potatoes then add to the oven.
  • Bake at 400 for 45 minutes
  • Remove from oven, top with red pepper sauce, then add back to oven and cook for 5 minutes. Remove and serve with green onions.

For the Infused Olive Oil

  • Heat ¼ cup of the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic cloves and saute 1 min with stirring. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
  • Add the thyme and rest of the olive oil and turn down the heat to medium-low. Cook for 2-3 min with stirring.
  • Remove from the heat and let the oil cool down in the pan. This allows the oil to infuse further.
  • Once the oil has cooled down, filter through a fine strainer. Put the oil in a closed container and refrigerate immediately. At this point you can discard the garlic. Keep the oil container in the refrigerator.


Plain olive oil works just fine if you don't want to infuse it.
