    1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Transfer to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    3 Roast the brussels sprouts

    Line a separate sheet pan with foil. Place the quartered brussels sprouts in a medium bowl. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Add as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Toss to thoroughly coat. Transfer to the sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 12 to 14 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, in a medium pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chorizo. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 7 to 9 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.

    Cook the beans

    In the pot of reserved fond, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced shallot and sugar; season with salt and pepper.
