Roasted Sweet Potato with Lime and Honey

I am always looking for a new way to prepare my sweet potatoes.  After sitting at my kitchen table for some time and staring at the bowl of them, it came to me…Lime, why not?   I love the combination of the two together.


  • Fresh lime
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Ground Cloves
  • EVOO


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Rinse and cut your sweet potato into halves or quarters.  Lay them in a baking dish and add EVOO, make sure to turn them over and get both sides in the oil.  Squeeze your lime juice onto the potato.  Sprinkle a mixture of ground cloves and cinnamon to the tops and drizzle some honey.  Bake for about 45 mins OR until soft to your liking

Serve warm and drizzle a bit more honey on top.  This made great leftover for lunch the next day after my workout.  Enjoy

*Do you prefer to roast, bake, grill, steam OR all when cooking sweet potatoes?  Do you go traditional or add something extra like the lime?

  1. This is really a great idea! It looks so tasty and the lime must add such a zesty taste, I love the idea!

  2. Yum! I’ve only done sweet potatoes three ways: roasted with olive oil, salt, and pepper; roasted with olive oils, salt, rosemary, and thyme, and mixed the russets, plain yogurt, and chives in a twice-baked. I would never think to use lime, but I really should branch out! Thanks for sharing!

  3. You REALLY get up close and personal with that sweet potato, and I LOVE IT!

  4. This sounds delicious!
