Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Leeks and Shallots
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 cups chopped, peeled sweet potatoes
- 2 leeks, sliced half lengthwise and thinly sliced
- 1 shallot, peeled and sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix sweet potatoes with olive oil and salt. Toss to coat and pour into a shallow roasting pan. Roast sweet potatoes in preheated oven, turning frequently, until the vegetables are just cooked, about 20-25 minutes.
Toss the shallot, leeks and garlic in a small bowl with a tablespoon of olive oil.
5 minutes before sweet potatoes are fully cooked, remove them from the oven and spread the leek mix over the potatoes, tossing well. Return to oven to cook 5 more minutes.
