Ingredients

  • 4 Sweet Potatoes (peeled and chopped into bite-size pieces)
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup 100% Real Maple Syrup (drizzle on more when serving)
  • 1 cup Pecan Halves (may toast for 2-3 minutes ahead of time)
  • 1/2 cup Dried Cranberries (to keep it sugar-free, look for sugar-free dried cranberries)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt (or to taste)
  • Vanilla Bean (optional to add for flavor)

Instructions

To make on De'Longhi Compact All-Day Grill:

  1. Heat grill for 5 minutes. Place sweet potatoes in a bowl and drizzle olive oil all over sweet potatoes. Sprinkle with cinnamon and salt. Toss all together. Spread out sweet potatoes on the grill (may need to cook only half at a time). Close grill and cook for 10 minutes, flipping every few minutes, until fork tender.

  2. Toss with pecans, cranberries, and maple syrup. When ready to serve, drizzle with more maple syrup. 

To Roast in Oven:

  1. Set oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.  Spread out sweet potatoes on baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil all over sweet potatoes. Sprinkle with cinnamon and salt. Toss all together.

  2. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tender. With 2 minutes remaining in baking time, toss pecans, cranberries, and maple syrup with the sweet potatoes. When ready to serve, drizzle with more maple syrup. 

Recipe Notes

**If you want to toast the pecans ahead of time, place on the grill or baking sheet and cook for 2-3 minutes until toasted.
