Chili-Lime Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Just a few simple ingredients transforms sweet potatoes into sweet potatoes that are packed with a punch and deliver a lot of WOW!
2 med-large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
1-2 tsp salt
1 TBSP lime juice
3-4 TBSP olive oil
2 TBSP honey (not pictured)
1-2 tsp dry roasted garlic
1 tsp dried, minced lime peel, optional
1-2 tsp dried Aleppo chilies
1-2 TBSP parsley
Mix all the ingredients together and then toss the sweet potato wedges into the mixture, making sure to thoroughly coat the potatoes.
Once the sweet potatoes are tossed in the chili-lime mixture, it is time to roast them. You can roast them in the oven, at about 400* F for about 30-40 minutes, or you can wrap them in foil and place them on the grill to roast for about 15-25 minutes. We roast them both ways and both are delicious. I have to confess though, I do not want to have the oven on if I don’t have to when the temperatures outside are pushing the mercury up to the 100* mark or above. 🙂 You are going to really enjoy these sweet potatoes no matter which way you decide to cook them though. They are full of flavor, easy to cook, and are relatively health for you as well.
