Cinnamon & Thyme Sweet Potatoes

Cinnamon & Thyme Sweet Potatoes

Roasted sweet potatoes spiced up with cinnamon and thyme, easy and so healthy!

I have always loved sweet potatoes, but recently they have become an addiction. I have literally been eating them every day for the last month! Baked, grilled, boiled, sauteed!

If you are a sweet potato lover, like I am, well cheer up! Sweet potatoes have SO many health benefits: they are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus.

I had a bag of this small purple skin sweet potatoes and decided to cook them with one of my favorite spices: cinnamon, together one of my favorite herbs: thyme!
