Roasted sweet potatoes “à la persillade”


My girlfriend knows I just love sweet potatoes. So she sent me this recipe from a French vegetarian website. Since that day I was waiting the moment to do it. So after a walk in the park this morning I thought why not to have it as a snack this afternoon. It was so good. I ate it with a little spoon for the fun. I recommend as a side. Bon appetite!
