Roasted Sweet Potatoes

IMG_20190314_182332

A recipe for a super simple side.  In fact, it is hardly a recipe since I never measure the ingredients.   It also has also appealed to the palette of a certain “non-sweet-potato-fan”.  Give it a shot, maybe the even the pickiest of eaters in your house will enjoy it!

Things you will need:

IMG_20190314_140421

3 large sweet potatoes, cubed

Olive oil, honey, salt, pepper, pumpkin pie spice (or Cinnamon) and smoked paprika (use as much of each as you like).  I am heavy handed with the paprika–it is such a striking contrast to the sweetness from the potato and the honey.

Mix all the ingredients together.

Spread on a tin-foil lined baking sheet

Bake at 400F for 20-25mins, till the sweet potatoes are brown and soft

This a gluten free, healthy breakfast that has all the flavors of fall.  I made this recipe mostly to clear out my pantry and it turned out really well.  So if you want to clean out the bottom of cereal box and use up the last of pumpkin puree–this is a good go to recipe.  The best part, it tastes like dessert, but it is a healthy breakfast.
So here we go.

Mix 3 eggs, 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 1/4cup apple butter or applesauce, 1/4 cup almond milk and mix thoroughly –till smooth.
