• 3 or more medium size sweet potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 2 or more ordinary potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1 medium to large onion, cut into chunks
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • a few healthy pinches of rosemary and marjoram
  • 2 or more cloves of minced garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • OPTIONAL: 2-4 carrots, cut into chunks


Wash but do not peel the sweet and ordinary potatoes. Cut veggies into chunks. Dump these in an oiled baking dish. Add the spices and oil. Stir. Bake, covered, in a 375 degree oven for 35 minutes. Uncover, mix around, add salt and pepper, and bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-30 minutes longer, until veggies are nicely browned.

For a main dish, serve over garlic-flavored couscous.
