I’ve officially reached my sweet potato max and we haven’t even hit Thanksgiving. Luckily I’ll be taking a break today from all things orange and sweet as we head west. But, first, here is the last recipe from the Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Challenge, apple cider roasted sweet potatoes.
I actually made this recipe Monday when I made the lime potatoes but I thought they seemed to similar to each other. So yesterday I went to the store for more sweet potatoes to attempt a fourth recipe last night. It ended up being sort of a dud and now I’m reverting to Monday’s recipe which was definitely tasty.
As the apple cider vinegar reduces it’s very pungent, you’ve been warned!
Apple Cider Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Inspired by Oh My Veggies
2 large sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350.
Peel and chop potatoes into 1/2″ pieces.
Toss potatoes in olive oil and salt.
Roast for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Flip half way through.
While potatoes are roasting add water, apple cider and brown sugar to a small pot. Stir to dissolve sugar. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer for 6-7 minutes. Glaze will reduce to a few tablespoons.
The glaze has a slight tang and acidity that works much like the lime in the first recipe. I actually ate both together for lunch Monday and was very pleased. This, of course, was before my sweet potato overload.
I’m typing this from my phone on the plane so I apologize for any spelling or photo errors.
Lastly, I’m so grateful to all family and friends on this Thanksgiving eve who share this little space of the Internet with me. Thank you for your support and love!
Safe travels to all.
