  • 4 sweet potatoes

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 teaspoon gochugaru (Korean red pepper flakes)

  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar

  • ¼ cup less-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 orange, zested and juiced

  • fresh chopped cilantro, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with foil

  2. Peel sweet potatoes and cut crosswise into 3/4-inch-thick rounds.

  3. Toss together sweet potatoes, oil, and gochugaru (Korean chile flakes) in a bowl. Spread out in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.

  4. Roast in the preheated oven until knife-tender, 15 to 18 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, bring brown sugar, soy sauce, orange juice and orange zest to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until a thick, syrupy glaze forms, about 15 minutes. Remove potatoes from oven.

  6. Position oven rack 6 inches from heat; preheat broiler. Lightly smash each potato slice with the bottom of a glass. Broil until browned in spots, about 3 minutes. Drizzle with glaze. Garnish with cilantro.
