Roasted Honey-Lemon Sweet Potatoes

Recipe by N-JO1956
READY IN: 30mins




  • Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into 1 1/2-inch irregular chunks. The more edges they have, the better they will taste because each edge will become crispy from broiler.
  • Parboil potato chunks in a large saucepan until they are softened, but not mushy. Sometimes I prefer to steam them quickly instead, it's your choice. The potatoes need to be almost totally cooked, because they will only be crisped in your oven broiler.
  • While sweet potatoes are boiling or steaming, mix the lemon juice, olive oil, and honey in a large bowl.
  • Set oven on LOW broil or set top broiler element to 450 degrees as soon as potatoes are added to mixture.
  • Drain potatoes and toss with lemon/oil/honey mixture until totally coated. Pour into a 9 by 13 baking dish. Sprinkle with the sea salt, and roast under your oven's broiler setting on second-to-top rack of oven (not too close! Use the rack about 3 inches down from broiler. Broil until edges begin to brown.
  • You'll have to stand and keep an eye on them, this only takes a few minutes with a broiler. Sometimes I rake them over once with a long handled spatula or turn them with silicone tongs.
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately. Warn everyone it's a HOT plate!
