Instructions

    Preheat the oven to 425°F [225°C] and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

    Coat the sweet potatoes with 30 ml / 2 tablespoons oil, season with salt and pepper, and spread the slices across the pan in one layer. Roast for 15 minutes; turn the slices over and roast for another 10 minutes or until lightly browned on both sides and soft all the way through.

    In a small bowl, stir together the prunes, the remaining 15 ml / 1 tablespoon oil and the vinegar.

    Top the sweet potatoes with equal amounts of cheese and prunes. Roast for 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Sprinkle with walnuts and basil.
