Rainy Day LA Snacktime: Roasted Sweet Potato w/ pecans and maple syrup

Third day of rain in Los Angeles. I feel like I might as well live in Scotland…

Solace was just pulled from the oven, however, in the form of two piping hot farmer’s market sweet potatoes, or “sweet tatties” as my wife calls them, doused with maple syrup and sprinkled with chopped pecans.

Preheat oven to 450

Peel sweet tatties, poke a few times w/ a fork
Coat in olive oil and balsamic
Sprinkle on some salt
If you dare walk outside to get some rosemary from the garden (I didn’t) you can sprinkle some chopped rosemary on as well.

Roast for about 45 minutes to an hour…turning once. Test done-ness by inserting fork – it should slide in and out real easy like.

Cut open, insert a pat o’ butter, maple syrup and pecans.

Get a little fatter and do not feel guilty. Sweet tatties are good for you.

Sweet Tatties. Yum.
