    Hasselback Sweet Potatoes with Compound Herb Ghee is another tasty recipe preview I’m sharing from newly released cookbook, The Performance Paleo Cookbook

    The cookbook came out last week and already I’m seeing so many of your pictures on Instagram and around social media. It’s an absolute thrill to have so much fantastic support, and I’m really glad you’re loving the recipes!

    Right now, I’m on book tour with Ciarra Hannah of Popular Paleo. We’re speaking in Salt Lake City today and next weekend we’ll be in Dallas, Austin, Phoenix and San Diego. Come out and see us!

    This recipe may sound fancy of complicated, but it’s totally not. There are six ingredients (not counting the sea salt), and it can be roasting in the oven on your weekly cook up day or while you’re getting the rest of dinner prepared.

    From The Performance Paleo Cookbook

    Deliciously roasted sweet potatoes with a dollop of healthy fat

    Hasselback potatoes originated in Sweden, and they make basic roasted spuds special. When roasted in the oven, the fan-shaped cuts get crispy and delicious. Top these sweet potatoes with a compound butter of ghee and fresh herbs for a sophisticated finish.

    Ingredients

    • 1 lb (454 g) white sweet potatoes
    • 1 tbsp (15 mL) melted ghee
    • 1 tsp sea salt
    • 2 tbsp (30 g) ghee
    • 1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
    • 1 tsp fresh chopped rosemary, about 1 sprig
    • 1 tsp fresh thyme, about 5 sprigs

    Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 400°F/204°C and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Scrub the skin of the sweet potatoes thoroughly. Use a very sharp knife to make several vertical cuts from the top of the sweet potatoes most of the way through, stopping about ¼ inch/6 millimeters from the bottom. Place the sweet potatoes on the baking sheet. Brush with the melted ghee and sprinkle the sea salt on top. Roast for 60 to 75 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are soft.
    2. Meanwhile, make the compound ghee. In a small bowl, combine the ghee, garlic, rosemary and thyme. Stir well with a spoon until it forms a soft mixture. Top the hot roasted sweet potatoes with the compound ghee.

    Notes
    Try white potatoes instead of sweet potatoes if you desire. In this recipe, I make an exception about not eating the skin because it’s so crispy.

    1. Question….based on the note in the recipe I’m assuming you don’t normally eat the skin of potatoes? Is there a reason?

      Thanks!

      1. Hi Beth…in general, I find the skins sort of tough. Also, in white potatoes, the highest concentration of glycoalkaloids (which can exacerbate autoimmune conditions) are in the skin.

    2. Hi, I have a quick question. I’m new to paleo diets and such but excited. Anyway, you mentioned above to try white potatoes? I had thought that potatoes were totally not paleo? Or did you mean white SWEET potatoes?

    3. I really enjoyed this recipe! The only thing I changed was I didn’t use fresh herbs 🙁 Oh well it was Awesome! The ghee is the key.
