Recipe for Honey-Roasted Sweet PotatoesINGREDIENTS:
2 Tbsp. of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. of honey
3/4 tsp. of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 tsp. of kosher salt
A pinch or two of crushed red pepper flakes
A few grinds of freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a large oven-safe baking dish with olive oil. Place the sweet potatoes in a large bowl. In a smallish bowl, mix together the olive oil, honey, and lemon juice. Pour the mixture over the sweet potatoes and toss well to coat. Spread the coated potatoes into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle on the salt, crushed red pepper flakes, and black pepper and gently toss. Cook the potatoes uncovered for 30 minutes, then toss and cook for another 30 - 35 minutes. Allow to cool for a minute or two before serving. If desired, sprinkle the potatoes with extra salt, red pepper flakes, and/or black pepper.
