2 large sweet potatoes/yams, peeled
1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
6 cloves garlic, peeled
8 thyme sprigs
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Put oven rack on bottom of oven; heat to 400°F.

Cut potatoes/yams into thirds lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/2"-thick wedges. Put potatoes in small bowl with 1 tablespoon of oil, garlic, thyme sprigs, salt and pepper. Toss until evenly coated.

Spread in single layer in shallow nonstick baking pan. Roast, uncovered, 20 minutes. Turn potatoes using spatula. Bake until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes more. Return to bowl; toss with remaining oil.
