Sweet Potatoes are in season, so I try to use them in many of my seasonal dishes. With only one tablespoon of olive oil in the whole recipe, this is a deliciously healthy fall side dish, to go with pork, beef, or in our case, turkey burgers. Sweet Potatoes are high in beta-carotene, and the touch of oil boosts the beta carotene nutrients. Sweet potatoes are also high in Vitamin C and potassium. These Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes are crunchy with a kiss of maple syrup!
- 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
- 1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
- 1 tsp. Rosemary
- 2 Tbsp. Sweet Onion, Finely Chopped
- 2-3 Sweet Potatoes, scrubbed clean
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Mix the olive oil, maple syrup, onion, and rosemary together in a small bowl.
You can add a little bit of salt to taste, but we prefer our sweet potatoes without salt. After you have washed and dried the sweet potatoes, cut them into 3-4 inch pieces. Don’t peel the potatoes, as many of the nutrients are in the skin.
Toss the potato pieces into the olive oil mixture. Line a baking sheet with foil and spread the potato pieces on the foil.
Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until slightly crispy. The maple syrup-kissed potatoes are crunchy outside, billowy soft and sweet inside, with just the right hint of rosemary.
