Cinnamon Ginger Sweet Potatoes

I made this for the first time last year it just really puts some awesome taste in your sweet potatoes. I grew up either never having sweet pototoes or not liking them I don’t know which, however I started eating them about 4 years ago when I wanted to start eating healthier. It’s a great fall recipe too!! I also put this on top of my Chicken Sheppard’s Pie (See Main Dish Section for Recipe) it’s different and a bit healthier!


• 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
• 1/2 onion, diced
• 1 1/2 tbsp ginger, minced
• 4 cloves garlic, chopped
• 6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
and cut into cubes
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• 1 tbsp honey
