Jerk Sweet Potatoes

by flavorslutofficial

I hate recipes that ask you to make a giant batch of a sauce you don’t use all of, but when I make these I also usually make jerk chicken sooooooo it gets used! If you don’t want a double dose of jerk it freezes super well.

BTW we all see the dog hair in these which I did NOT see before posting, my b. So everyone meet my very hairy goodest girl Peanut Butter!

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 4 Tbsp butter (melted)
  • 3 bunches green onions (trimmed of their roots)
  • 1 large red onion
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground clove
  • 1 Tbsp allspice
  • 1.5 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup tamari
  • 3 whole serrano peppers (or a whole scotch bonnet if you’re brave!!!)
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp anise seeds
  • 1/4 cup lime juice or coconut vinegar
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit In a blender or food processor combine: Green onion, red onion, garlic, avocado oil, cinnamon, clove, allspice, nutmeg, salt, black pepper, soy sauce, serrano peppers, thyme, fennel seed, anise seed, lime juice or vinegar.
  • Blend until smooth, and leave it in the blender. Even if I said “place it in a bowl” you were going to do it anyway. I know it, you know it. Lets move along lol.
  • Dice sweet potatoes into bite sized chunks.
  • Slice bell peppers and the yellow onion.
  • Pour sweet potatoes, peppers, and onion into a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Take 1/2 cup of the jerk marinade and melt the butter into it. Then and coat your potato mixture with the jerk marinade butter mixture.
  • Cover your baking dish with foil and bake in the oven for 1 hour or until the sweet potatoes are fork tender. Enjoy!
