  • 2 Medium (1kg) Sweet Potatoes
  • 3 Apples
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Dried Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Dried Thyme
  • ½ tsp Salt do not add if making for a baby


  • Pre heat oven to 215C / 420F
  • Wash, scrub and cut the ends off the sweet potatoes. Cut into 2.5cm / 1 inch cubes 
  • In a large bowl, toss the cubed sweet potatoes with 2 tbsp of the olive oil, half the herbs and the salt. Stir until coated.
  • Arrange potatoes in a single layer over two baking trays, making sure to not to overcrowd. Bake for 20 min, stirring halfway through.
  • While the sweet potatoes are baking, core and chop the apples into 2.5cm / 1 inch cubes. Add to a large bowl and toss in the remaining oil and herbs.
  • After 20 minutes, remove the sweet potatoes from oven, add the apples and stir to combine.
  • Return to the oven and bake for a further 15 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  • Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before removing from the tray.



Apples: You can use any variety. Pictured are Granny Smith apples which provide a lovely tartness to complement the sweetness of the potato.
Herbs: Not keen on rosemary and thyme? Why not try tossing in curry powder, coriander, or sumac. Looking for a sweeter profile? Try using coconut oil and tossing in cinnamon, cardamon, and/or allspice. 
Don't Overcrowd: If you overcrowd the pan the sweet potatoes will steam and will become soft and mushy. Two roasting pans are recommended.
