honey mustard roast sweet potato

This honey mustard roast sweet potato recipe is absolutely divine. The combination of the sweet honey and mustard together with the sweet potatoes are an absolute delight to eat. The sweet potatoes in this recipe are cooked to absolute perfection and they make for the most delicious side dish for a meal.

I am waxing lyrical over this recipe because sweet potatoes are one of my favourite foods. If you open my fridge at any one time, you are likely to find sweet potatoes in there. Sweet potatoes are a great choice from a health point of view because they are high in beta carotene and fibre but they also add the most delicious element to a meal.

If you prefer, you can substitute the sweet potatoes for yams. The yams will make an equally delicious side dish. This recipe for honey mustard sweet potatoes has been served a few times since I created this recipe and I really hope that you enjoy them as much as we did, Leanne x
