Directions:

Preheat the oven at 425°F. Cut and remove the stems of peppers, then slice peppers into wide strips. Over a fast grill or stove flame, use tongs to roast peppers directly in the flame, turning until skins are black. Seal in a bowl with Saran Wrap over the top. Allow to cool, then remove the skin and seeds.

Alternatively, consider using roasted peppers pre-purchased in the jar to allow for a time-saving tip.

In a food processor, pulse the bell peppers, scallions, thyme, pepitas, tomato puree, apple cider vinegar, and paprika until they are incorporated, but still somewhat chunky and intact. Turn the food processor on and drizzle in olive oil until incorporated. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set mixture aside.

Wash and peel sweet potatoes. Using a mandolin slicer or food processor slicer attachment, slice all sweet potatoes to ⅛ -inch thick slices. In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes with prepared sauce and toss to coat. May refrigerate any unused sauce and store in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to five days or freeze for future use.

In a round oven-safe baking dish, arrange sweet potatoes in a circular pattern. Place in oven covered and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes.

Combine melted butter and brown sugar in a small bowl. Using a basting brush, baste sweet potatoes with this mixture and bake uncovered for another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and top with fresh thyme and toasted pepitas. Serve immediately.

Additional time-saving options: consider purchasing a prepared romesco sauce (we found "chosen foods" available at Amazon and select grocery stores). If you don't have time for the pictured presentation, simply chop the sweet potatoes into a medium dice, toss with the prepared sauce and follow the remaining baking instructions.

Dairy-free: consider Miyoko Creamery faux vegan butter.

Kids Can Cook Tips: This is where the kids get creative! Have them help measure all of the ingredients for the romesco sauce. Have them stack the sweet potato coins and stand on end to help create the circle in the pan. Come up with a new pattern for even more adventure in the kitchen! Have the kids pull fresh herbs to help decorate after the dish is out of the oven.
