Serves 4 | Prep Time | Cook Time


4 medium sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400°F. Halve potatoes lengthwise and prick them. Place on a baking sheet and bake 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender but not mushy. Remove from oven and set on a rack to cool a bit.

When potatoes are cool enough to handle, turn on broiler to high. Scoop sweet potato flesh out of skins, leaving a wall 1/2-inch thick. (Reserve scooped out flesh for another use.) Cut each sweet potato shell lengthwise into 1/2-inch-wide wedges.

Combine olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add potato skins to herbed oil mixture and gently toss to combine. Return to baking sheet and broil 4 to 5 inches from the top for 4 to 6 minutes, or until piping hot.

Bake the potatoes until they are just tender and still a tad firm so they don't turn to mush and fall apart. These potato skins are a great side dish to meat, tofu or salmon.
