  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch rounds

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1/4 cup crème fraîche or sour cream

  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar

  • 1/2 pound snow peas

  • 1 tablespoon snipped chives


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a large baking dish, toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 50 minutes, or until tender and browned, turning halfway through.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk the crème fraîche with the vinegar.

  3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet. Add the snow peas and cook over high heat until crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Season with salt sweet potatoes, and pepper and transfer to a large platter. Add the sweet potatoes and top with dollops of the crème fraîche. Sprinkle with the chives and serve right away.
