My friend made these for our Thanksgiving dinner, this year. We really enjoyed these - a great change from the overly sweet sweet potato tradition [which I don't touch!]! Her husband had picked up virgin coconut oil - I would probably use refined - or a mix of the two - the coconut flavor was just a little strong for me - though my friend really liked it . . .

I really enjoyed this dish. Unfortunately, there is snow covering my garden herbs this time of year so I resorted to using dried thyme leaves and rosemary (I ground the rosemary more fine in my coffee grinder). I didn't measure the seasonings, just sprinkled to taste. Very good! As others noted, it did take more than 20 minutes to roast - about 40-45 minutes to get a tender bite. The sweetness of the potato combined with the savory herbs was perfect! I love the coconut oil also. Yum! I will make this again.

Delicious! However, took much longer than 20 minutes to cook right.

I've never cared for sweet potatoes. Came across this recipe and decided to try one more time. I LOVE this recipe. They were delicious! I cooked them exactly as the recipe instructed and they were perfect. I've made them several times now. A keeper!

Delicious! I left it in the oven for 45 minutes after reading the other reviews. Didn't measure anything, but I'm sure I used more rosemary and lots more coconut oil - about a tablespoon.

It did take a lot longer for my oven to cook. I would estimate about 45 minutes or so. I didn't have rosemary so I used basil and I added in some small white potatoes to the mix. I loved it but would have loved it just as it was written!!

Great recipe! 20 minutes and they are perfect!

will definitely take much longer than 20 minutes in the oven with a fresh potato. But if you nuke it first to soften the center a bit, you will have great and speedy results!
