So I can’t believe how incredibly cool life is right now. The Kickstarter for Good and Cheap is climbing over $44 000 as I write this. I am beyond elated!

I wanted to take a moment to share this quick and simple recipe for sweet potatoes. 

I ate this for lunch with some black beans, but I think it would be great cold as an alternative potato salad at a picnic as well. Dig in!

Ingredients
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp chipotle in adobo finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Turn the oven to 400 F.
  2. Slice the sweet potatoes into quarters lengthwise. Cut each piece into half moons.
  3. In a cast-iron pan on medium heat melt the butter. Add the honey and chipotle and whisk to combine. Add the sweet potatoes and toss to coat. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Place the pan in the oven and bake the potatoes for approximately 20 minutes. Test to see if they are cooked through by piercing them with a knife. If it goes in easily they are done. When you take them out of the oven quickly stir them to make sure all of the glaze ends up on the sweet potatoes rather than wasted in the pan!
Recipe Notes

Alternatively if you don't have a cast iron pan you can use a regular pan and then transfer the potatoes to an oven proof baking dish. The cast-iron pan cuts down on dishes though, so consider investing in one if you can!
