Every once in a while, I stumble upon a recipe that blows me away both in its simplicity and its flavor. Easy recipes are my favorite and when a no-fuss recipe ends up getting rave reviews from both me and Ryan, I instantly become a fan and the recipe makes it into my not-so-organized recipe folder for future use and inspiration.
This recipe for roasted sweet potato wedges with a hot honey drizzle was one of those recipes!
The recipe appeared in a Blue Apron delivery we received earlier this month that called for the hot honey to be drizzled over chicken and sweet potato wedges and served with a fresh kale slaw seasoned with caraway seeds, celery seeds and ground mustard.
It was the kind of meal that had us wishing we had leftovers to enjoy the following night, so I ended up copying the sweet potato and hot honey drizzle recipe to use as a side dish to serve with burgers on the grill later in the week.
The recipe requires minimal ingredients and minimal prep work but seriously delivers on flavor!
Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Hot Honey Drizzle
Recipe from Blue Apron
- Two sweet potatoes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- Salt, to taste
- Pepper, to taste
- Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry sweet potatoes. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise; slicing each half into fry-size wedges.
- In a small bowl, combine the honey and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the honey to be; season with salt to taste. Set aside in a warm place.
- Place the sweet potato on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in an even layer, skin sides down, and roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.
- Drizzle with as much of the hot honey as you’d like, serve and enjoy!
In the years we’ve been ordering Blue Apron deliveries, a handful of their recipes have made it into my recipe folder to recreate (one of their recipes inspired my beloved One Pot Chicken Cabbage Bowl with Sesame Ginger Broth) and I love trying new-to-me cooking techniques that also expose me to new flavor combinations and different cuisines.
Though I’m sure you’ve heard of Blue Apron by now if you’re a regular PBF reader, here’s a quick rundown of the meal delivery service for those who may be new to the blog: Blue Apron is a meal delivery service that ships all the farm-fresh ingredients you need to make chef-designed recipes right to your doorstep.
Recipes come with detailed recipe cards that include pictures of recipe steps to make the recipes easy to follow and prepare.
Two person and four person family plans are available and you can customize your recipes to make them vegetarian or include/exclude certain kinds of meat or poultry. (Their vegetarian dishes have been some of our all-time favorites!)
