Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ginger and Honey
« on: November 11, 2007, 04:06:29 PM »
I am so excited to have found this recipe just in time for turkey day! My mom always makes a sweet potato dish but uses lots of butter and brown sugar... this will be a much healthier version and tasty too!  :P

I found this recipe at submitted by Christine L.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
Ready in: 55 minutes


3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup honey
3 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons walnut oil
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
In a large bowl, toss together the sweet potatoes, honey, ginger, walnut oil, cardamom, and pepper. Transfer to a large cast iron frying pan.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Stir the potatoes to expose the pieces from the bottom of the pan. Bake for another 20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender and caramelized on the outside.

Thank you for posting your recipe. I found out today I am supposed to bring a sweet potato dish to Thanksgiving. The way my mom used to prepare it when I was little - well, I hated it! But I know it had LOADS of brown sugar and butter on it - even sugar/cinnamon mix.

I will try your recipe this week. Maybe it'll even become a new favorite!

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Awesome, I am bringing the sweet potatoes again this year and this recipe is just in time.  I like to add parsnips to my dish as well. 

Last year I posted an inquiry that generated some other sweet potato recipes:
