Roasted Sweet Potato with Rosemary & Garlic

Sweet potatoes was on sale the other day at the market and I think I went a little overboard.  I brought home about 10 pounds of sweet potatoes...for one person.  I have gotten a little bored with just roasting it with a little salt and pepper.  This is a slight twist to keep my taste buds happy.

2 small sweet potatoes, peeled
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon rosemary (fresh or dried)
2 large garlic cloves, sliced very thinly

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly oil a baking dish/pan. 

Cut the sweet potatoes in half length wise.  Make cuts in the potato in diagonals (forming a diamond shape).  Place smooth side down on the baking dish.

In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, oil, salt, and pepper. Brush the sweet potatoes with the juice mixture.  Sprinkle with rosemary over top.  Then top with the garlic.

Bake for 20-24 minutes, until sweet potatoes are soft when tested with a fork.
