Smokey Sweet Potatoes with Tomato-Parsley Salad

Smokey Sweet Potatoes with Tomato-Parsley Salad

Whether you eat them as a frugal side dish or a fast and healthy weeknight dinner, Smokey Sweet Potatoes with Tomato-Parsley Salad are a unique and unexpected dish.

The preparation couldn’t be faster or easier. Simply slice your sweet potatoes lengthwise and top with olive oil, salt and smoked paprika. The smoked paprika will add a deep smokey flavor which will compliment the natural sweetness of the sweet potato, creating a unique depth of flavor.

Smoked Paprika can be expensive, this is why I opt for the 1oz McCormick jars,  a little goes a long way, a jar like this can easily last me 6 month.

Smokey Sweet Potatoes with Tomato Parsley Salad

Roast the SP at 350 F for 45 minutes to 1 hour while you prep the tomato salad and whatever else you may be having for dinner. We served this with oven barbecued pork ribs last week and it was DELICIOUS!

 

The tomato-parsley salad is very simple as well, I like to use cherry tomatoes for their natural sweetness.  I add a little salt, extra virginolive oil, fresh Italian parsley, and bring everything together with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. The acidity of this salad adds much needed freshness to the starchy dish, balancing the sweet and smokey flavors of the potatoes.

 

Smokey Sweet Potatoes with Tomato-Parsley Salad make a fantastic Vegetarian main course!

 I hope you enjoy this fast, healthy and delicious side dish this Thanksgiving with your family and friends.
