so simple.

For some reason wordpress has been shrinking all of my photos and refusing to let me post larger ones. So, yet again, a substandard photo. I’m sorry 😦

But again, this recipe absolutely makes up for it. Comprised of only 3 ingredients, it is laughably simple but everyone who has tried it has been amazed. Two secrets: 1) Don’t bake all of the flavor out of this awesome tuber. 2) Buy organic, fresh looking sweet potatoes. It really does make a huge difference.

Sweet Potatoes with Candied Pecans

Ingredients:

2 sweet potatoes, sliced ¼”- ½” and baked at 350 for 25 mins or until soft all the way through

½ cup chopped pecans (can substitute with walnuts)

¾ cup maple syrup

After the sweet potatoes have been cooked and are cooling, roast the chopped pecans over low heat on the stove, stirring continuously. After they have browned and are emitting a beautiful smell, pour in maple syrup and allow to simmer for a few minutes. Then pour over the sweet potatoes while tossing and serve warm.

That’s it! That’s all and I know you are dubious about this…maybe it sounds bland or un-exciting. But just try it. You will save yourself lots of energy and money and anyone you feed this to will probably save a huge space in their heart for you.
