This Sweet Potato Tian is made with parmesan cheese and fresh herbs and is melt-in-your mouth delicious!
Friends!! We are almost a whole week into November. That means we have less than three weeks until Thanksgiving. THREE WEEKS! Which means Christmas is coming, too.
Deep breathe. We have time. We have time. Plenty of time.
Okay, I feel better already. Thanks for working through that anxiety with me.
Seriously. If there’s one thing that gives me anxiety, it’s not having enough time to get all the things done. So let’s get our Thanksgiving menus planned already!
Actually, I’m going to my brother’s house for Thanksgiving this year, but I’m more than happy to help you plan your menu! I have a lot of Thanksgiving recipes coming your way the next few weeks.
I’m also going to be sprinkling in more lifestyle content as it’s been very recipe-heavy lately and I want to share more than just food here. So be on the lookout for fitness posts, healthy lifestyle posts, and more.
But for now, back to the Thanksgiving recipes.
How about this Sweet Potato Tian for starters?
Now, don’t get me wrong. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sweet Potato Casserole (<—that one is made with pecans, not marshmallows and is vegan and gluten free!) but if you aren’t on that train, this is a good alternative. Or serve both. You sure can’t have too many sweet potatoes on the table, right?!
You know how much I love sweet potato recipes!
If you’re thinking “what on earth is a tian?!” you’re not alone. I knew what I wanted to make but wasn’t sure what it was called. A little research let me know that thinly sliced layered vegetables baked in a round or oval baking dish is known as a tian. Thank you google.
This is a super simple side dish to make that just involved a little slicing. I opted to use a knife rather than a mandoline slicer because my mandoline was making my sweet potato slices a little too thin. You want thin slices, but not paper thin.
It really is a snap to throw this side dish together and the flavors are spot on! You just can’t go wrong with butter, parmesan cheese, and fresh herbs. I hope you love this as much as I do!
