Rosemary sweet potatoes are healthy and easy to make. They’re utterly addictive!
Caramelized shallots, roasted sweet potatoes, mushrooms and chopped garlic cloves are sprinkled with fresh parsley in this delectable holiday treat.
I’m looking forward to serving this up as one of the vegetable side dishes at my family’s Christmas dinner. Read about the many health benefits of sweet potatoes here.
This sheet pan potatoes and veggies recipe is quick and easy to make and healthy and safe for everyone to enjoy: gluten free, nut free, dairy free, and paleo friendly.
I actually made this dish for the first time last week after a crazy day of holiday busyness. I was craving something delicious to snack on in the evening while I did my Christmas shopping (who else is skipping the crowded malls and shopping online?).
Last-Minute Tree Shopping and Festive Menu Planning
All of my Christmas preparations seem to be very last minute this year. In fact, my family didn’t even embark on our Christmas tree expedition until this past Friday.
Bundled into our hats and coats and scarves, we piled into the car and drove off for the farm where we’ve bought our tree for the past several years. Imagine our alarm when we saw that there were only five trees left, and those were far too big to fit into our living room.
Starting to become worried, we headed off to several other nurseries, but each one was already closed, and it didn’t look like any of them had a very large selection of trees either.
How could all of the trees have been bought so quickly?
Surely there must be others like us who waited the weekend before Christmas to find the perfect tree. We returned home, dejected, hoping that our search would be more fruitful Saturday morning.
But I’m pleased to report that this story has a happy ending. Our Christmas will not be tree-less. Saturday morning we headed out once again, hoping one of the nurseries would still have a nice selection left.
Even at the nurseries, nearly all of the trees were gone, but there was one that was waiting very patiently for us, and we knew at once it was ours: a beautiful Fraser Fir, the perfect size to fit into the corner of our living room.
I just love the fresh smell of the pine needles at Christmastime.
And that beautifully decorated tree is now reminding me daily that I need to put the finishing touches on the menu for my family’s Christmas dinner.
Definitely, these Rosemary Sweet Potatoes and Mushrooms will be on the table.
Here’s what you’ll need to make them.
Ingredients for rosemary sweet potatoes
Broth: A savory gluten free base enhances the flavors of the dish.
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil: A high-quality oil providing a luscious texture and a delicate, fruity aroma to the veggies.

Sweet Potatoes: These vibrant orange tubers bring a natural sweetness and a creamy texture to the recipe.

Garlic: Sliced garlic cloves infuse the recipe with warm aromatics, enhancing the overall taste of the roasted vegetables.
Rosemary: Fragrant and aromatic rosemary lends a piney and earthy aroma to the recipe.
Mushrooms: Sliced mushrooms add a rich umami taste and a meaty texture to the dish.
Salt and Pepper: These essential seasonings elevate the flavors of all ingredients.
Parsley: Fresh parsley provides a burst of color and a mild, herby flavor, enhancing the visual appeal and taste of the final dish.

First, cut the sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and shallots into even-sized bite-size pieces. Mix the sweet potatoes, shallots, garlic, and rosemary in a large bowl.
Next, whisk broth, olive oil, and vinegar in a small bowl or measuring cup and pour half of the broth mixture over the sweet potato mixture.
Then, spread the mixture in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet pan. Roast in your preheated oven at 400°F until the potatoes begin to soften, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, toss you mushrooms with the remaining broth mixture.
Now, add your mushrooms to the sheet pan for the last 20-30 minutes of roasting. Cook until the potatoes are browned and a fork can easily be inserted.
And that’s it!
About now, the house fills with the wonderful aroma of that glorious roasted sweetness. Yum. Garnish with parsley for a burst of color, freshness, and a hint of herby flavor.
Serve and enjoy!
