Jamaican Jerk Roasted Sweet Potatoes

The other day, my husband was at the Whole Foods salad bar.  He saw they had some Jamaican Jerk Roasted Sweet Potatoes, but the were so expensive!  So he had to create his own version that is very affordable and easy to make!

We have had many recipes inspired from the Whole Foods salad bar.  A few examples are: Kale and Apple Salad, Curry Chickpea Cous Cous, and my Carrot Ginger Detox Salad.  These Jamaican Jerk Roasted Sweet Potatoes would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving table.
