While holidays usually come fully equipped with all of the standard, traditional fare, special dietary requirements sometimes send us in search of new options. This year, I came across this awesome sweet potato option that is really easy, healthy and looks absolutely festive on the table. This comes from another site called OneHotOven.com

INGREDIENTS:

1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled
1 apple (I used a Gala)
1 cup cranberries
2 TBSP olive oil
1/3 cup real maple syrup
1 TSP cinnamon
1 TSP dried sage leaves
1/2 TSP kosher salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the peeled sweet potatoes in half and slice into 1/4 inch half moon shapes. Add to a large bowl.

Cut the apple into quarters, removing the core and seeds. No need to peel. Add to the bowl with the sweet potatoes.

Mix in the remaining ingredients. Place the mixture into an 8 x 8 baking dish, trying not to overcrowd so that the potatoes roast evenly.

Roast the sweet potatoes for about 45 minutes, stirring several times during the bake process, or until the potatoes and apples are tender.
