Honey, Lime & Rosemary Purple Sweet Potatoes

Here’s a really easy side dish that I just recently created. Thanks to our local online produce service – check them out at – we were recently introduced to purple sweet potatoes. From the inside, they look similar to beets, but their flavor is subtle and sweet, like you would expect. Here’s what I did with them:

Ingredients (for two to three people)

Two large sweet potatoes
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
Three to four fresh rosemary sprigs, stems removed and finely chopped
Sea salt to taste


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Peel and cut the sweet potatoes in half inch slices and set aside. Mix the honey, lime juice, and olive oil. Toss with the sweet potatoes.

3. Sprinkle everything with salt and the chopped rosemary and put on a baking sheet.

4. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour at 350 and enjoy warm!

    OMG! I love the purple sweet potatoes…. They have even more nutritional value than regular ones…. Also harder to find here b/c they are grown in NC. I just found some last week!
