Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with foil. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into large florets. Medium dice the sweet potatoes. Place on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the spice blend; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer.
