Sweet Potatoes Agrodolce

Serves 4-6

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. Sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
  • 1⁄4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 jalapeño or fresno chile, seeded and thinly sliced in rings
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3-4 sage leaves, thinly sliced
  • 1⁄4 cup pepitas, toasted

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes in a large bowl and drizzle it with the oil, 1 Tablespoon honey, and a big pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly.
  3. Transfer the potatoes to large rimmed baking sheets, spreading evenly.
  4. Roast until caramelized, 20-25 minutes, flipping the potatoes halfway through.

  6. Reduce the heat and simmer for 4-6 minutes until syrupy.
  7. When potatoes are finished, spoon the agrodolce over them and serve right away.
  8. Finish with the pepitas and sage.
