  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Apples
  • Pecans
  • Craisins
  • Cinnamon
  • Olive Oil
  • Maple Syrup

Directions ~ How to Roast

  • For this recipe I like to mix Olive Oil with Cinnamon and Maple Syrup in a small bowl and set aside. Then I prefer to wash and peel my Sweet Potatoes. However, feel free to leave the skins on, it adds nutritional value.
How to Peel Sweet Potatoe
  • With a sharpe knife, slice rounds about 3/4 inch thick. Then slice each round into 6-8 wedges. I find a smaller wedge works perfectly in this recipe so the Apples don’t over cook.
How to Cube Sweet Potatoe
  • Peel and core apple. Although you can leave the peels on if you prefer. It actually helps keep the apple from breaking down. It’s your choice.
  • I like to slice each wedge into 2-3 pieces. I like BIG apple chunks. This is to ensure the apple can hold it’s shape better while the Sweet Potatoes are cooking.
Sliced Apples

What Temperature is Best for Roasting Vegetables?

The perfect temperature– 400 degrees Fahrenheit is the perfect temperature for most roasted vegetables. It allows for a crispy, perfectly browned exterior and a fork tender interior. But it will vary based on the types of veggies and oil used. If your veggies are not browning enough, try increasing the temperature.
