Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes

This is adapted from an Ellie Krieger recipe.  I didn't have a fresh lemon, so I used orange zest instead.  Next time I'll use orange juice or 2 tsp orange zest (I used 1 tsp tonight, and it wasn't strong enough for me.)  I left it as I prepared it tonight in the recipe, so that you can adjust it to your liking.

Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes
serves 4-6

4 large sweet potatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp orange zest
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Peel the sweet potatoes, and cut into 1-inch pieces.  Place in a 9x12 baking dish.  In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, honey, and zest.  Pour over the sweet potatoes, sprinkle them with salt, and toss to coat.  Bake for one hour, or until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.

We had these tonight with Unfried Chicken Legs, green beans, mandarin oranges, and butter French bread.
