These veggies are lightly sweetened with maple syrup and diced apples. They're perfectly tender too! While this side is easy enough to throw together on a busy weeknight, it tastes extra special and worthy of a holiday meal.
Prep Time: 10mins
Cook Time: 20mins
Total Time: 30mins
2medium sweet potatoes
3 1/2tbspmaple syrup
2tbspolive oil, extra virgin
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Trim the bottom of each brussels sprout and peel away the first layer of leaves. That's where you usually see the dirt and any brown sprouts. Once this is done you'll have beautiful little bright green sprouts. Slice each sprout in half (unless it's already really small). Add to a 12x17 parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Peel carrots and slice into circles. Add them to the baking sheet.
Dice the apples (discarding the core) and add to the baking sheet. (No need to peel your apples.)
Peel the sweet potatoes. Dice and add to the baking sheet.
Drizzle veggies with maple syrup and olive oil.
Season everything with salt, pepper, ground mustard, and ground ginger.
Use a spatula to stir veggies so they're all coated with oil and seasonings. Spread vegetables in an even layer on baking sheet.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Veggies should be soft with a bit of browning on the side that touches the pan. Remove from the oven and serve immediately!
