Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Spiced Honey Raisins are great for Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner. This is an easy side dish and healthier alternative to traditional sweet potato casserole. This recipe is vegetarian, Paleo, dairy free, gluten free and has vegan options.
What is the best way to cook a sweet potato?
You can cook sweet potatoes in so many ways: baked, grilled, boiled, in the slow cooker and even in the pressure cooker. Of all the methods I prefer Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes. They are tender inside and the skin gets crisp.
Plus, oven roasting sweet potatoes is really low effort. Just slather with oil, puncture with a fork and bake. No fuss, minimal preparation and hardly any clean up.
How long does it take to roast sweet potatoes?
Roast them at 450ºF for 45-55 minutes, depending on the size. You can roast at a lower temp but it will take longer.
Are honey roasted sweet potatoes healthy?
If you are watching your sugars or following the Keto diet then this isn’t for you. Sweet potatoes are naturally high in complex carbs and obviously the honey raisins have sugars.
But, sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin A & C and have fiber as well. In the grand scheme of holiday feasting recipes I’d say this would be one of the healthier side dish options.
This is a great side dish to serve for any family or friends that are vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free or vegetarian. You can also swap the honey for maple syrup and omit the ghee to make this vegan friendly.
