We had this the other week with our Sunday lunch. It was amazing! Really really delicious and so easy to make! I paired it with slow cooked roast beef, red wine gravy and lots of vegetables.

Ingredients (serves 2 as a side dish)
– 2 medium-sized sweet potatoes
– 1 tablespoon oil
– 1 teaspoon dried thyme
– 3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
– 150 grams thick asparagus spears, cut into 3 pieces each

5. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, then turn the slices over. After a further 5 minutes, scatter the asparagus pieces over the top.
6. Bake for 15 minutes more, until the sweet potato is soft and the asparagus is tender.
