Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Pears (Vegan)

This is one of my favorite recipes. It is a delicious twist on the traditional sugar-laden sweet potatoes often served during the Holiday Season. Sweet potatoes are abundant in Vitamin A while pears are rich in fiber and Vitamin C.

4 large sweet potatoes
4 pears
1 cup coconut sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet or casserole dish with foil or grease lightly with olive oil. In a large bowl, mix together the sweet potatoes, pears, coconut sugar, vinegar and spices. After tossing the ingredients together for several minutes, place on the dish or baking sheet and bake for 1 hour. Enjoy!

  3. Love roasting pears with apples, but have never done pears. Would never have thought of using apple cider vinegar either. Will definitely try this. 🙂
