Sweet potatoes (not to be confused with yams) are a great way to incorporate food from different colors of the rainbow into your diet. Honey brings out the sweetness in the sweet potato – a little goes a long way!

While the honey will help bring out the sweetness of the potato, the lemon juice cuts the sweetness a bit so that the flavor is more lively and less dull. The addition of fresh herbs at the end bring additional excitement, but the dish is great even without. Don’t have honey? You can substitute the honey with pure maple syrup.
