I keep telling myself that I was born in the wrong era. Or maybe I need to start living in the country again. Either way, I have always been a fan of simple and rustic meals. Meals that require limited ingredients and are very comforting and soul mending. Meals that are also easy on the pocket book yet create memories that last a lifetime.
For this dish I took sweet potatoes and roasted them with yellow onion, garlic, a splash of pure maple syrup and fresh sea salt and ground black pepper. Simple. Yet the taste was addicting and I couldn’t stop from taking my fork and hovering over the baking pan nibbling all night long.
- 3 medium/large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large bite size pieces
- 1 large yellow onion, chopped
- 1 head of garlic, peeled and cloves kept whole (about 10-12)
- olive oil, about 2-3 tablespoons
- 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
- salt and pepper to taste
- I also added dried dill to garnish
In a baking pan, add all ingredients and toss together. Cover with foil and bake in a 425 degree pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes (OR until potatoes are fork tender).
This dish can be a main course or a wonderful side for Holiday meals. I am planning on making this dish for Thanksgiving. For the pictures, I paired it with a rustic brown and wild rice combo.
