Brown Butter Roasted Sweet Potatoes
While sweet potatoes aren't 100% keto-approved, they do fall on the lower end of the glycemic index and are packed with health benefits, so I'm including this delicious recipe on my keto menu as a bit of a cheat that is well worth it in terms of flavor and nutrition.
4 pounds sweet potatoes peeled and cut into bite-sized cubes 1/4 cup brown sugar substitute I like Swerve Brown or Lakanto Golden sweetener 1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves 1 teaspoon fresh sage julienned (cut in thin strips) salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400℉
Add sweet potatoes and brown sugar substitute to a bowl and toss to coat.
Heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until it melts and then starts to brown...make sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn. This will take about 5 minutes.
Remove browned butter from heat and add thyme and sage.
Add the butter mixture to the bowl and toss to coat.
Season with salt and pepper.
Lay the potatoes in a single layer on a prepared baking sheet.
Roast for 45 minutes until the potatoes a soft and glossy.
Season with salt and pepper and serve!
