First off, I'd like to thank A Platter of Cakes by Beata for following my site!
It's been awhile since I participated in Magazine Monday. Time to flip through the huge pile of magazine recipes I have hoarded.
Jennifer Garner’s Lemony-Maple Sweet Potatoes was a featured recipe in People magazine a few months ago. Yeah...I am just getting around to trying it. Sorry I waited though.
The movie star and mom of two shared a side-dish she loves t make during the holiday season. I say, why wait for holidays?! I love sweet potatoes. Doesn’t have to be Christmas or Thanksgiving for us to enjoy them.
2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 ½ inch chunks
1 TB olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 TB maple syrup
2 TB lemon juice
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Toss sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper in a large baking dish. Cook until almost tender, 30 minute.
Whisk syrup and lemon juice in a small bowl.
Remove potatoes from the oven and drizzle ½ maple lemon mixture over potatoes. Stir gently and return to oven; bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown.
Served with a grilled rib eye and skewered tomatoes.....mmmmmm
I will be sending this to CreamPuffs in Venice for her roundup of Magazine Monday. Surf over to visit the Creampuff and see what else is shaping up in her neck of the woods :-)
