Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 

3 tablespoons honey 

2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks (about 6 cups) 

1/4 cup Thai sweet chili sauce 

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 

2 dashes hot sauce 

1/4 cup toasted pecans, chopped 

3 scallions, chopped 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Put the olive oil in a large mixing bowl. Add the salt, pepper, cinnamon, ginger and 1 tablespoon of the honey and whisk to combine. Add the potatoes and toss to coat. Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet. Roast, stirring halfway though, until the potatoes are tender and the edges are crisp, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, make the glaze: Put the chili sauce, red pepper flakes, hot sauce and remaining 2 tablespoons honey in a small saucepot. Set the pot over medium-high heat and cook, stirring, until the ingredients come together, about 2 minutes.
  4. Pour the warm glaze over the potatoes on the baking sheet and toss to coat. Pour the glazed potatoes into a serving dish and sprinkle with the pecans and scallions. Serve warm.
