Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Honey and Spices

         Sweet Potatoes - they stand for their name and taste. I love to munch them raw (I know it hurts your tummy if you eat too much). They give great sweetness with a crunch and for people who love sweet and spicy food, sweet potato fries are indeed a treat. I side this with pasta or a bowl of rice with Daal(Indian Curry with lentils). 

         My little one loves this recipe version and you can see her interest to pick one in the pictures. When you want to close your kitchen work fast but also treat the family with a great side, try this recipe.

Why did I use Honey on Herbs? Will they be too sweet? If these questions pop your mind then don't worry - Honey enhances the natural sweetness of potato and helps to enhance the flavors of herbs and spices used, so you will not go wrong with this :).

Ingredients:   Serves : 2 people

Sweet Potato - 1 medium sized (Peeled and Diced)
Olive oil - 1 teaspoon
Butter - 1 tablespoon
Dry Oregano - 1/2 teaspoon
Black pepper powder - 1/4 teaspoon
