Ingredients

  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes about 2 medium-large ones
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Pure Infused Chipotle & Lemongrass maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • crushed peanuts and parsley for garnish

Peanut Sauce

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter smooth & natural
  • 3 tablespoons Pure Infused Chipotle & Lemongrass maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce low sodium; use Tamari for gluten-free version
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon roasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F and prepare 2 baking sheets.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into wedges or stick-shape. Whisk together olive oil, maple syrup, salt, chipotle powder and pepper. Toss with sweet potatoes to evenly coat.
  3. Spread on 2 baking sheets (or 1 large one). The sweet potatoes shouldn't touch. And bake for about 30 minutes. Flip halfway through. They should be tender and starting to brown. Bake 5-10 minutes longer for larger pieces.
  4. In the meantime prepare the peanut sauce by whisking together all ingredients until smooth.
  5. Once the sweet potatoes are done, sprinkle with crushed peanuts and chopped parsley and drizzle with peanut sauce. Or just dip them in the sauce.
