Growing up in St. Lucia, we didn’t have Thanksgiving, so I first experienced it when I was at culinary school and went home with a classmate. The tradition and family part of the holiday reminded me of our holiday gatherings back home. I love combining my Caribbean roots with the traditional Thanksgiving food, like in this quick roasted sweet potato recipe with jerk seasoning.
In a bowl, mix sweet potatoes with all the ingredients and reserve.2.
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Place sweet potatoes in a roasting pan and roast for 20 minutes, until tender; turning every 8 minutes to ensure they cook and caramelize evenly.
