Why I Love This Recipe

A simple sweet potato that can be made into a sweet and savory side dish

Ingredients You'll Need

2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground pepper
½ cup low-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon lemon juice


1) Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 500 degrees F

2) Toss sweet potatoes, butter, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Arrange in a single layer in a 9-by-13-inch metal baking pan. (Do not use a glass dish, which could shatter.) Roast, flipping once, until browned, 25 to 30 minutes

3) Whisk broth, maple syrup and lemon juice together in a measuring cup. Carefully add the mixture to the pan. Continue roasting until most of the liquid is absorbed and the sweet potatoes are very tender, 5 to 8 more minutes. Serve hot
