Rosemary Roast Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are lower on the glycemic index than brown potatoes but can be used in much the same way: baked, boiled, roasted and mashed. They combine perfectly with the fragrance of the herb rosemary. This dish is a great accompaniment for poultry and vegetarian dishes.
