With Thanksgiving looming tomorrow and the meal planning & Muppet Movie release today, I’m assuming we are all pretty busy the next two days! 😉 This recipe was actually submitted to a magazine by Jennifer Garner (yes, the actress) and it is quick, easy & delicious. I have made this table pleaser several times (I’m sorry I don’t currently have a picture – I will remedy that soon!). It’s a great side dish!
Lemon Maple Sweet Potatoes (serves 6-8)
- 2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1″ x 2″ chunks
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
Preheat oven to 375 F. Toss potatoes with olive oil, salt & pepper in a large glass baking dish. Cook until almost tender, 25-30 minutes.
Whisk syrup & lemon juice in a small bowl. Drizzle half the mixture over the potatoes. Gently stir and bake 10-15 minutes until golden brown and tender. Drizzle remaining liquid and serve!
These sound so good! I love the idea of lemon and maple together, thats a flavor combo I don’t think I’ve seen too often!
