Greek Sheetpan Sweet Potatoes with Chickpeas

Sweet potatoes are roasted on a sheetpan with garlic, olives, feta, and chickpeas and topped with dill for an easy and tasty side dish or main.

Greek Sheetpan Sweet Potatoes with Chickpeas

If you’ve never roasted feta cheese, you need to give it a try and this recipe is perfect for that. Sweet potatoes are roasted until fork tender on a sheet pan along with other Greek inspired ingredients, such as kalamata olives, tomatoes, and of course, feta.

 

The kalamata olives warm and become soft and velvety, while the tomatoes burst and add a nice sauce-like consistency. The chickpeas become slightly crunchy and the dill brings everything together with its earthy taste.

Greek Sheetpan Sweet Potatoes with Chickpeas

This dish is easy clean up (it’s one pan!) and it’s a great way to change up your sweet potato game. You can place this on a bed of greens for a salad or serve it alongside your favorite protein (like a roast chicken or steak) or put it on top of a bed of grains with a little tahini for a bowl meal. It’s versatile, easy, and flavor packed.

tell me how everyone's doing on their thanksgiving prep - ready? haven't even started yet? I haven't bought a single thing yet! 😇😱🤡
...

the holidays are going to be very tough and emotional for many of us this year. we're not going to spend it with the loved ones we typically do to keep one another safe and even worse, some of us will miss family we've lost to the COVID virus. 💔⁣

something that always cheers me up is food. I've come to realize that one of the reasons it has this therapeutic effect on me is because it's a safe space for me to block out everything else and just enjoy the art of cooking. 🥄⁣

and I realize that this will not be helpful to everyone ("oh, ali, I can't just cook it all way!"), but if it does, try to get in the kitchen and cook (or bake!) something that brings you happiness. and if it does not and you're sad right now, that's okay too. it's okay to not feel okay. 🙏🏼 I wish I could help more, but in the meantime, my love, strength, and heart goes out to you. I'm thinking of you.⁣

but, IF food and cooking is cathartic for you too, I encourage you to make something new this year for Thanksgiving (or over whatever holiday you celebrate.) sometimes following steps in a new recipe keeps your brain focused on the task and you're able to let everything else wash away. at least that's how it is for me! I'm flipping through my cookbooks and sharing some of my favorite holiday-friendly recipes over on stories, like this one from #InspiralizedandBeyond! 📚⁣
