Maple Sweet Potato Bites

INGREDIENTS
8 cups organic sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup organic pure maple syrup (try Cadia organic 100% maple syrup)
2 tablespoons organic butter or margarine
(try Earth Balance organic vegan butter spread, my favorite!)
1 tablespoon organic lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a 9 x 13 baking dish, arrange sweet potatoes in an even layer. Combine all other ingredients in a small bowl and pour over sweet potatoes; toss to coat. Cover and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, stirring mixture every 15 minutes, until potatoes are tender and starting to brown.



This dish is simple and perfect for fall (which officially strikes TODAY, Friday, the 23rd). It makes a great side dish or, as I discovered, a very satisfying dessert!
