This post is sponsored by Olive Oils from Spain. As a true olive oil lover myself and a new big fan of Spain, this partnership is a match made in heaven! Of course, all opinions are my own.

My family and I have a very serious love affair with olive oil. My Dad, who is basically a health food guru, is famous in the family for using a very generous amount of olive oil. To the point where, when he’s seasoning a salad for instance, we ask him if he wants some salad with his olive oil haha. Solal and I even came up with the expression “to make a Gérard” (my dad’s name!) when we’re going to drench something in olive oil – because, to be honest, we’re pretty much like him. True olive oil lovers over here, I’m telling you! 😍

Last September, as part of our European travels, we spent a month in Sevilla, Spain and…holly molly Spanish food is just THE BEST. Seriously, besides the most beautiful colors and architecture, our best memories resolve around food. Of course, part of that food included the delicious Olive Oils from Spain!

Olive oils there can be found on the table of pretty much every restaurants, served in cute little bottles. Each one we tried had a different taste and texture – which is not surprising when you know there are about 260 different olive varieties (not kidding you!), making the range of flavors, aromas and textures of these olive oils unique to the world! (I feel like a proud mama saying that haha 😁)

Although I very much recommend you go, you don’t need to travel all the way to Spain to taste and cook with these wonderful Olive Oils from Spain. They are the largest producer of olive oil in the world (Spain makes up for around 50% of all the olive oil produced worldwide!) so you’re kinda bound to find some near you. And when you do, please run to the kitchen and make these sweet potato wedges ASAP because they are THE BOMB.

I love using extra virgin olive oil when I make sweet potato fries or wedges (or any roasted veggies for that matter!) because it adds such a nice flavor and really enhances the taste of the sweet pots. In a true “Mediterranean Diet” fashion, I also added some fresh rosemary (they work SO WELL with sweet potatoes) and some crumbled goat cheese. I might be a little partial here but seriously, the whole thing is just SO good!! Healthy eating never tasted so delicious 💖
