Buttery Baked Sweet Potatoes with Parsley

The best part of thanksgiving is undoubtably the sides, amiright?

I love making these sweet potatoes because they taste super decadent but are covered with zesty parsley which gives them a delicious freshness. Further, parsley is an awesome detoxifier. So have your wine and pumpkin pie – parsley is here to save the day.


  • 3 sweet potatoes, chopped into cubes
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 tsp himalayan pink salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • avocado oil for greasing


  • Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a baking sheet with a small amount of avocado oil.
  • Dice the shallot and transfer to a large bowl. Add the cubed sweet potatoes, ghee, salt, cayenne, garlic powder and black pepper and toss until everything is coated evenly.
  • Pour onto prepared baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until sweet potatoes are fork-tender.
  • Remove from oven and transfer to serving dish. Sprinkle parsley on top and toss everything together. Serve & enjoy!
