Author Notes: I have been making this recipe for years and it is often requested for potlucks. Brown sugar caramelizes best, but I've used honey and maple syrup more frequently, convincing myself it's healthier that way :) You can add sliced red or new potatoes as well. —riv
medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into matchsticks
bunch scallions, washed and cut into 1" pieces
cloves garlic, crushed
cup honey, brown sugar, or pure maple syrup
kosher salt and black pepper to taste
cup olive oil
- Preheat oven to 425 F.
- Arrange sweet potatoes and scallions on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Add garlic, honey, salt, pepper and olive to to vegetables on pan.
- Roast for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning, until sweet potatoes are very soft and caramelized and scallions are slightly charred.
