Serves 8

  • 3 medium leeks, white and light green parts chopped (6 cups)
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
  • 3 Tbs. chopped fresh rosemary, divided
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (2 lb.), peeled and cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 3 Tbs. Italian seasoned dry breadcrumbs

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat 10-inch round pan with cooking spray.

3. Arrange one-third sweet potato slices over bottom of prepared pan, overlapping slightly. Spread half of leek mixture on top. Arrange another one-third sweet potato slices over leeks; top with remaining leeks, followed by remaining sweet potatoes. Drizzle broth over dish. Cover pan with foil, and bake 35 minutes.
