I wanted to make a healthy dinner, but also one that tastes good. I am good with salad or kale most evenings, but husband prefers a bit more… substance. So tonight we had a blackberry and kale salad, brown rice, and butter pecan sweet potatoes. Here’s the potato recipe! Easy, yummy, and healthy. What’s better than that?
- 8 medium sweet potatoes (5 lbs.), or one per person
- Olive oil
- 2 tbs butter
- 2 tbs brown sugar
- 1/3 cup pecan pieces
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel potatoes and quarter lengthwise; slice crosswise 1/2 inch thick. On a baking sheet, toss potatoes with olive oil ); season with salt.
- Cook until potatoes are tender, tossing occasionally, 25-30 minutes.
- Sprinkle with butter, brown sugar, and pecan pieces, dividing evenly. Bake until sugar is carmelized and hard, about 10 minutes. Toss gently; serve immediately. Serves 8.
