Ingredients
Sweet Potatoes
  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Chimichurri
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 2 tablespoons thyme leaves
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Bacon
  • 3 strips bacon, fried and set on a paper towel to cool
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Toss sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt, and spices. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 35 - 40 minutes, flipping once halfway through, or until sweet potatoes are crisp on the edges and tender in the center.
  3. Finely mince parsley and thyme leaves. Trim ends and smash garlic with the flat of your knife. Remove papery skin and finely mince. In a small bowl, combine herbs and garlic, and whisk in olive oil. Whisk in vinegar, salt, and spices.

  4. Use a spatula to arrange wedges in a wide bowl or platter. Spoon on chimichurri, and finish with the crumbled bacon. Serve immediately.
