What to do

  1. Slice sweet potatoes into 3/4-inch thick discs.
  2. Boil a large pot of water and place sweet potatoes in the water, letting them cook until tender (20-30 minutes).
  3. Preheat your oven to 400°F and line and baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Drain the sweet potatoes and allow them to cool until you can safely handle them.
  5. Evenly space the sweet potatoes on the baking sheet and use a fork to gently smash the surface of the potatoes.
  6. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes, then sprinkle with garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper.
  7. Place the sweet potatoes in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  8. Flip the potatoes and bake for an additional 15 – 20 minutes.
  9. While the potatoes are cooking, place the aioli ingredients into a food processor and blend until completely smooth. Scrape down the sides and blend for an additional 10 seconds.
