Foil wrapped Roasted Sweet Potatoes topped with deliciously, low calorie green goddess dressing.
Pin Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Green Goddess Dressing here.
I started making a different recipe with these sweet potatoes. I was actually working on a recipe I started last summer for grilled potatoes with a compound herb butter. That had been my plan for these orange beauties. My husband was grilling some ribs, and I thought we could throw the potatoes on. Well, he was cooking the ribs low and slow. Oops! That wasn’t going to work for the potatoes. I had already cut them and bathed them in some oil, butter and garlic and wrapped them in foil. I really should have communicated what I wanted him to do. However, I thought he could read my mind. After all, we have been married for 13 years.
He should be able to read my mind by now! Why wasn’t he? We will have to work on his mind reading skills. In the meantime, I needed to come up with plan B. I threw the garlic potatoes into the oven. I figured I could still make the compound butter, but then I saw my bowl of green goddess. Why chop up a bunch of herbs when I already had this herbaceous dip? The green goddess was calling out to me.
The green goddess dip got its way. I baked the sweet potatoes; then topped them with this gloriously, green concoction. One bite and I knew this was the perfect recipe to make. Plan b turned into super-duper plan a. Now my husband would say, that was his plan all along. He could read my mind, but thought using the green goddess would be better. So he set it up for me to make the sweet potatoes that way. It was his master plan and a stroke of genius. I may have even uttered the words “You are right.”
I should have communicated better, and this is a great recipe. He doesn’t hear those words very often. He always loves to rub it in when I say “you are right”. I can be guaranteed he will try to get me to repeat it. He is usually the one having to say it, so he takes great satisfaction in the times I do. Make some Foil Wrapped Sweet Potatoes with Green Goddess yourself. You will be happy with this “plan B” recipe.
