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.
