This one came about when hubby brought home some sweet potatoes from the store, but didn't want them fixed the unhealthy way( the ONLY way I know how). That's baked with brown sugar and marshmallows. He was wanting a healthier version, so I started looking and found this one on food network. Obviously it wasn't the candied variety I love to eat, but since we're trying to be healthier and loose weight, I gave it a try.
Turns out, the honey and cinnamon were just enough. I thought they were very good, as did hubby. The kiddos are a different story, but they don't even eat my candied version, so they don't count!!
Here's all you need:
4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling potatoes after cooked
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Lay sweet potatoes out in a single layer on a roasting tray.
Whisk together the olive oil, honey, and cinnamon then pour over the potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Roast in oven for 35-45 minutes until tender. The original recipe called for 25-30 minutes, but it took a good bit longer in my oven(of course, my chunks were a bit larger than 1 inch). Check often so as not to burn.
