Spicy Honey-Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges

I did a happy dance, at least in my mind.

Waking up minus one precious hour of shut eye was fine by me.

That lost hour of sleep is already a distant memory.

My latest joy is that it will be lighter outside later. Thank goodness!

Plus we are getting that much closer to the start of the outdoor farmers market season in Chicago.

The countdown to May is on.

Of course I know I am getting ahead of myself.

We are still months away from fresh berries and endless basil.

For now, that means I am sticking with hearty root vegetables, specifically sweet potatoes.

My pantry is never without sweet potatoes for soup and even salads.

Sometimes I use sweet potatoes more for a side like these honey-roasted sweet potato wedges with lime-spiked Greek yogurt.

They are a roasted vegetable with a special sauce.

How To Make Spicy Honey-Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges

First, I preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a sheet pan with aluminum foil.

As the oven is warming up, I make the sauce, which is a combination of Greek yogurt, lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.

I put the yogurt mixture to the side and get prepping the sweet potatoes.

With 2 large sweet potatoes, I slice them lengthwise into 8 wedges each that are the size of steak fries.

I toss the sweet potatoes in honey, red pepper flakes, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Then I arrange them on the sheet pan.

They roast for 25-35 minutes until they are tender enough to be pierced with a knife and are browned at the edges.

Finally, I arrange the sweet potatoes on a serving platter and top them with sliced scallions and chopped parsley followed by a generous drizzle of the lime yogurt.
