Hasselback Garlic Sweet Potatoes
Servings: 4
  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons white rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy/tamari sauce
  • Optional: Top with cracked black pepper chopped fresh basil
  1. Preheat the oven to 450F
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and add the sweet potatoes. Boil for 10 minutes with the lid on
  3. Remove from the water, and allow to cool.
  4. Create thin 1/8″ slices through each potato, making sure not to cut completely through the potato. Stop right before you hit the bottom.
  5. Add the sweet potatoes to an aluminum foil-lined baking dish
  6. In a blender/food processor, add the olive oil, garlic, vinegar, & soy/tamari and blend until consistent and most of the garlic is chopped
  7. Rub the blend into the slices and the top surface of the sweet potatoes, until all the sweet potatoes are coated
  8. Wrap the potatoes within the foil (you may need to use another top sheet) and pop into the oven for 40 minutes. Open the oven, uncover the potatoes, so that they're exposed to the heat, and bake an additional 20-25 minutes, or until desired crispness is reached
  9. Top with cracked pepper and fresh basil. Enjoy!
