Roasted sweet potatoes are tossed with toasted sesame seeds, feta, and parsley. Then all drizzled with honey. Its a healthy way to make roasted veggies over the holidays that still have a lot of flavor! —Poppies and Papayas

What You'll Need
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sesame seeds (hulled)
  • Raw honey
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta (I used feta in stored in brine)
  • Pinch of chili flakes
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, finely minced
  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. Meanwhile, chop the sweet potatoes into bite sized pieces, leaving the peel on, and place into a medium bowl. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave until liquid, about 30 seconds, and pour over the sweet potatoes. Toss well, until evenly covered.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment, and evenly pour out the sweet potatoes onto the sheet, making sure that none are overlapping. Bake for 10-12 minutes and check for tenderness. Stir. If tender, then sprinkle with sesame seeds, and return to the oven to bake 2-3 more minutes, until sesame seeds are lightly toasted.
  3. Remove from the oven and generously drizzle the sweet potatoes with raw honey, crumbled feta, fresh parsley, chili flakes, and sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. Mix well and serve warm or cold.
  4. Note: These make a great side dish, or can even be tossed into a mixed green salad.
