I LOVe it when I find a new blog with lovely recipes. And while waiting in the airport last week I found this one: Kitchen Konfidence. And the first thing I found were these lovely tasty roasted sweet potatoes. And you should stop what you are doing and get all the ingredients for these pronto and make them tonight for dinner!!! Or just for a mid afternoon snack. They are so so so so so good.
As I was making them my hubby was a little skeptical. But I told him to trust me. And then when we were eating he was like “Man, i take back what I said! I should have trusted you. These are awesome!”
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Recipe from: http://www.kitchenkonfidence.com/2016/01/roasted-sweet-potatoes-with-honey-smoked-paprika-and-lime-yogurt
- 2 medium (about 3 pounds) orange sweet potatoes (also known as yams)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided (2 for the potatoes, 1 for the yogurt)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt
- Juice of 2 limes
- 2 green onions, ends trimmed and sliced on the bias
- Cilantro leaves
Cut each sweet potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half in half widthwise. Cut each quarter into four long wedges, so you'll have a total of 32 wedges. Add wedges to a large bowl and toss with honey, 2 tablespoons olive oil and smoked paprika. Season well with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Let marinate for 10 minutes, tossing twice throughout.
Preheat and oven to 425°F. Transfer the sweet potatoes to a rimmed baking sheet, and roast until they are tender and caramelized around the edges (35 - 45 minutes), tossing occasionally. You'll know they're done when a knife easily pierces the thickest part of one of the wedges.
While the potatoes are cooking, whisk together yogurt, lime juice and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season to taste with kosher salt and black pepper.
To serve, transfer potatoes to a large platter, and drizzle with lime yogurt (you won't use all of it). Finish with a scattering of sliced green onions and cilantro leaves.
I had lime greek yogurt so I just used that instead of adding lime to plain greek yogurt and it worked great.
I’m excited to see what else Brandon shares as far as recipes goes! Have you found any recipe blogs you love lately?
