In this roasted sweet potato recipe, a touch of lime, along with real maple syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon, adds Caribbean-style zest to balance the natural sweetness of the potatoes.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Combine maple syrup, brown sugar, butter, oil, salt, cinnamon and cayenne in a large bowl. Add sweet potatoes and toss until thoroughly coated. Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring every 15 minutes, until tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Sprinkle lime zest over the sweet potatoes and gently stir to distribute.


Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
