Za'atar Smashed Sweet Potatoes

 3 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed
 2 Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 2 tbsp za’atar
 ½ tsp kosher salt

Place whole sweet potatoes in the microwave for 10 minutes or until soft. Alternatively, place sweet potatoes in a pot of boiling water and boil for 25 minutes.


Meanwhile preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Once potatoes are cooked, half crosswise and place on the prepared baking sheet.


Slightly smash each one, with a potato masher or a heavy can.


Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with za’atar and salt.


Bake at 450°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until skins begin crisp slightly.
