The best roast butternut and sweet potato


The best roast butternut and sweet potato you will ever make

 

This roast butternut and sweet potato dish is such a wonderful way to showcase these two beautiful vegetables.  They are simply cooked by roasting them in the oven with olive oil. This brings out their true sweet yumminess. For me this is really the best way to cook these two vegetables. They are both such versatile vegetables and can be served  with almost anything.

To make this roast butternut and sweet potato dish I first cut round circles from the butternut and sweet potatoes. I used two butternuts and one large sweet potato.  For this roasted butternut and sweet potato recipe I chose to use the solid round parts of the vegetables. However please feel free to use the whole butternut for this recipe because the centre part of the butternut also roasts beautifully.

With so many holidays and festivities around the corner I hope that you find this recipe as easy and as tasty as we did. It really made the most beautiful side dish for our meal. The beauty of this roast butternut and sweet potato recipe is that is extremely quick and easy to put together. once it’s assembled you can almost forget about it until it’s cooked.

I look forward to sharing my next recipe with you, Leanne
