Who doesn't love a perfect balance of sweet & spicy? These caramelized sweet potatoes have a delicious, saccharine coating that brings our the earthy & naturally-sweet flavor of the sweet potatoes. Paired with our Spicy Red Pepper Olive Oil, a slight kick at the end leaves a sensation similar to a decadent hot honey. Try as the perfect accompaniment to a protein-forward meal. It's even good enough to have as a healthy dessert alternative!
