Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Apples
Roasting Fuji, Golden Delicious, and Granny Smith apples with sweet potatoes give this dish an extra punch of fiber and flavor. Consider using half the amount of sweet potatoes and replacing the other half with another seasonal favorite, butternut squash.
3 pounds orange-flesh sweet potatoes (often labeled
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 Fuji apples, peeled and cut into 1-in. chunks
2 Golden Delicious, peeled and cut into 1-in. chunks
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into 1-in. chunks
1/4 cup maple syrup
Finely shredded zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, plus sprigs
About 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes, oil, apples, syrup, lemon zest and juice, chopped thyme, 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, and pepper until coated.
2. Spread mixture in a single layer in 2 large, oiled, rimmed baking pans. Roast until sweet potatoes are browned and tender when pierced, 40 minutes, turning chunks every 15 minutes. Transfer to a platter, add more salt to taste, and garnish with thyme sprigs.
Make ahead: Up to 1 day; chill. Reheat, drizzled with a little olive oil, in a 425° oven in 2 baking pans, until hot, 20 minutes.
