Roasted Sweet Potatoes

6 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
½ c. honey
¼ c. + chili oil (olive oil and Aleppo pepper simmered for 15 min at low heat. I couldn’t find an Aleppo pepper and tried a different red pepper. It didn’t add enough heat to our dish so next time I just might try red pepper flakes.)
2 T. butter, melted
1 T. za’atar seasoning
3-4 garlic cloves, finely chopped or pressed
Salt (pre-roasting)

2 c. full fat Greek yogurt
2 limes (juice and zest)
¼ c. maple syrup

Green onions, chopped for garnish

Peel and chop sweet potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Toss with olive oil and salt and bake for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees. You want them just barely undercooked.

While the potatoes roast, make chili oil and let cool. Combine honey, chili oil, melted butter, garlic cloves and za’atar seasoning. Pull the potatoes out of the oven and coat with the honey mixture. Place back in oven for 15+ more minutes.

Combine 2 cups Greek yogurt with juice and zest of 2 limes with ¼ c. of maple syrup (to taste).

Pull potatoes out of the oven, garnish with green onions and serve yogurt sauce on the side or drizzled over the top.

(Going to try this with brussel sprouts next)


  1. I felt exceptionally cheerful while perusing this site. This was truly extremely instructive site for me. I truly enjoyed it. This was truly a sincere post. Much obliged!. clarified butter

  2. Sadly, in present day times, ghee has paid the price for being unfortunate. Moms and aunties who might once affectionately take care of their kids rice spooned with spots of ghee, have now quit utilizing it because of a paranoid fear of stoutness and heart-related illnesses. best organic cow ghee
