Honey Glazed Sweet potatoes

Carbohydrate-rich and colorful, sweet potatoes offer lots of health-protective beta-carotene. Enjoy sweet potatoes with chicken, fish, and beef meals, and plan to make extra so you'll have leftovers to enjoy cold as a preexercise snack. Sweet potatoes are healthier than a cookie—but just as sweet!

2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 medium) 1/4 (60 ml) cup water 2 tablespoons brown sugar 2 tablespoons honey 1 tablespoon olive oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 °F (190 °C).
  2. Lightly coat bottom and sides of a 9- x 13-inch (23 x 33 cm) baking pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  3. Peel (if desired) and cut the sweet potatoes into 3/4-inch-thick (2 cm) chunks.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the water, brown sugar, honey, and olive oil.
  5. Transfer the sweet potatoes to the baking pan and spread into a single layer. Pour the sauce over the potatoes and turn the potatoes to coat thoroughly.
  6. Cover with foil and bake about 30 to 45 minutes or until tender, stirring gently twice to ensure sweet potatoes are coated.
  7. When sweet potatoes are tender, remove the foil and bake an additional 15 minutes or until the glaze is set.
