Recipe: Easy Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Onions, Apples, and Hint of Orange

This pretty & healthy side dish would be perfect for Thanksgiving (recipe here).

For years I prepared sweet potatoes the same old way: cut into chunks and then steamed, mashed with a fork, and sprinkled with lots of salt. I loved them, but this scrumptious roasted sweet potato recipe requires only slightly more effort and yet is ten times tastier.

This dish is nice enough to serve to company, though I usually devour it all on my own. The roasting does take a little time, but it will make your kitchen smell marvelous.

Kohlrabi Purée (I love this stuff)

Still hungry? You'll find links to all my sweet and savory Less Fuss, More Flavor recipes in the Farmgirl Fare Recipe Index.

©, where if you're like me, you make these vegetable recipes every other day of the year, because on Thanksgiving it's all about the stuffing and the gravy—and dessert. Oh, and the turkey.


  1. This look delicious! I like them plain as well but this recipe looks like it would make a very pretty presentation rather than same old-same old mashed.


  2. Sounds scrump-dilly-icious. Love baked apples and baked yams so it’s a definite winner in my book.

  3. I love roasted sweet potatoes and this sounds so good!
