  • 1/4 Cup real maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

  1. Pre-heat oven to 415° F
  2. Place the pieces of sweet potato, onions and pecans in a large bowl.
  3. Add olive oil, maple syrup and salt. Stir well to coat all of the vegetables
  4. Spread the vegetables out evenly on a large baking sheet or shallow baking pan
  5. Roast in pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes until the sweet potatoes are soft and develop a deep brown color on the edges.
  6. Place in a serving bowl and garnish with the feta cheese.

There are many variations you can try with this recipe. Add some baby carrots or replace the onions with chopped apples. Try adding some butternut squash. The sky is the limit.
