For a comforting dinner, definitely worth making again.

  1. Preheat the oven to 205°C (400°F).
  2. In a bowl, mix the beet ingredients.
  3. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place the beet mixture. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, turning the beets halfway through cooking.
  4. Meanwhile, place the sweet potato cubes in a saucepan. Cover with cold water and salt. Bring to a boil, then cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until tender. Drain.
  5. In the food processor container, place the sweet potato cubes. Add the butter and cream. Blend until smooth. Salt and pepper.
  6. In a saucepan, heat the honey sauce, soy sauce and rice vinegar over medium heat. Let reduce for 3 to 5 minutes, until the sauce has thickened (be careful not to reduce too much to avoid creating a caramel).
