Sweet Potatoes Roasted in Herbs

July 5, 2015

Barbados – Day 5

Just sitting down in Barbados is enough to have you sweating ridiculous amounts, you have to consistently keep drinking… water… and rum.  Lol!  But seriously you have to stay hydrated and if you’re like me, always busy and dancing ’till you can’t dance no more you probably need serious carbohydrates to reboost that lost energy.  My sweet potatoes are amazing.  My trick is to cut the sweet potato into small bite-size pieces so you can eat them like snacks.  Much healthier than crisps.

This recipe was taken from Caribbean Cookery Secrets by David and Gwendolyn Daley (Right Way, 2013).


1.5 kg sweet potatoes (peeled and chopped), 1 large onion (peel and chopped), 2 tbsps fresh chopped herbs, 3 tbsps olive oil, 2 tbsps butter (melted), 1 garlic clove (finely chopped), 1/4 tsp salt and ground black pepper.


  1. Pre heat the oven to 230 degrees C.
  2. Lightly oil a baking dish and set aside.
  3. Put the herbs sweet potatoes and onion in the dish.
  4. Combine the oil, melted butter, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl and drizzle over the powers.
  5. Mix together.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, stir and bake for a further 15 minutes until the sweet potatoes are tender and brown.
