Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time45 minutes
Total Time55 minutes


3 pounds sweet potatoes roughly equally sized
3 tablespoons melted butter or melted extra virgin coconut oil
3 tablespoons Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil or plain olive oil
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 garlic cloves peeled and thinly sliced or chopped
1 1/4 cups vegetable broth

  • Preheat the oven to 500°F.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 1-inch thick rounds. Arrange on a half sheet pan with space between the slices to allow for air to circulate. Drizzle the potatoes with the butter or coconut oil and the garlic extra virgin olive oil or plain extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the top. Use your hands to flip the sweet potatoes and slide them around in the oils, making sure they're completely coated.
  • Roast the sweet potatoes for 15 minutes, or until the undersides of the slices have caramelized to a beautiful deep brown. Carefully flip the sweet potato slices and return the pan to the oven for another 15 minutes.
  • Flip the sweet potato slices once again and scatter the chopped or sliced garlic over the sweet potato slices and then pour the vegetable broth over the works. Return the pan to the oven for another 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are completely tender and the broth has reduced to a thicker consistency. Use a spatula to transfer the Melting Sweet Potatoes to a serving plate and drizzle the sauce from the pan over them.
