Honey Soy Sweet Potatoes

2 cloves of garlic
1 small onion
1 TBSP of olive oil
2 TBSP of honey
1 TBSP of soy sauce
1 TBSP of rice vinegar
1 lb sweet potatoes (about three medium size)

Heat oven to 450 degrees.

Chop sweet potatoes into bite size pieces and toss with olive oil and one TBSP honey. Roast sweet potatoes about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and have dark spots on them.

Chop onion and garlic. In a small pan sprayed with cooking spray, cook until browned and translucent. Add remaining honey, soy and rice vinegar. Bring to a boil. reduce heat and simmer 1-2 minutes until syrupy.

Toss roasted potatoes in the glaze.

WHY IS THIS GOOD FOR YOU?
Sweet potatoes are a super dose of vitamin A -five times the daily value (DV) the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends. They also offer some vitamin C and a significant helping of important minerals, including calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and iron.
If you buy local raw honey (which we do), it has been said to help with environmental allergies.
