Maple Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges

  • 3 lb sweet potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp + 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

These gorgeous sweet potatoes are so simple to make, and chances are you already have all the ingredients you need at home!  Serve them alongside a salad composed of brussels sprouts, blue cheese, and toasted nuts.

Preheat the oven to 400°F.  Wash sweet potatoes thoroughly and pat dry.  Cut each potato in half lengthwise and then slice each half into about 4 fairly evenly-sized wedges.  Lightly oil a large baking sheet.  Toss the potato wedges with about 1 TB olive oil and the salt.  Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet and place in oven.  Roast for about 20 minutes, turning once, until easily pierced with a fork.  While the potatoes are roasting, whisk together the maple syrup, vinegar and 2 tsp olive oil.  Brush potato wedges with this glaze and return to oven for about 10 minutes to caramelize the glaze.  Sprinkle with additional coarse salt, if desired.
