Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Autumn could be the most romantic season that we all await every year; the vibrant foliage is simply pleasing to the eyes. Thus, this Cinnamon-Roasted Sweet Potatoes Recipe complements that as it’s also good for the eyes. That’s courtesy of our harvest season favorite, the sweet potatoes, that provide high levels of vitamin A.

A holiday meal is almost tasteless without cinnamon. It’s the smell of holiday warmth. No wonder why there are no other spice that can evoke a sense of nostalgia with a touch of luxury than cinnamon.

Cinnamon is versatile not only as a culinary ingredient but also as perfume and even a medicinal component. It’s another potent antioxidant. It’s also credited for being antiviral, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory, keeping diabetes, heart diseases, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders at bay. 

These benefits are further enhanced by the addition of raw honey as our sweetener. 

This Cinnamon-Roasted Sweet Potatoes Recipe is a creative, starchy, creamy, savory, and innovative side dish for Thanksgiving Day. When caramelized perfectly, the blend of honey, cinnamon, and herbs creates a magical taste that would really make you thank God for Thanksgiving Day!  It’s perfect to make and prepare with the stellar turkey. The active preparation time is just 15 minutes (would be lower if sweet potatoes have already been prepped and used for other dishes), with at least 30 minutes’ inactive time in the oven.
