Better Homes and Gardens Roasted Sweets and Greens
This recipe has 8 ingredients. It takes 10 minutes of prep and 35 minutes of roasting and makes 4 servings. I was unable to find hazelnuts at any of my local stores, I never have been except shelled during the holidays. Since I was unable to find hazelnuts I substituted macadamia nuts. I had no problems finding any of the other ingredients and made no further ingredient modifications. Be careful and watch the sweet potatoes or they will burn. I turned mine approximately three times during the roasting to ensure even browning. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
The greens in this recipe aren't shown in the above picture. I actually served them on the side instead of on top of the roasted sweet potatoes. This way my boys actually ate both the greens and sweet potatoes without complaints. The best part about this recipe is that it is full of vitamins and has 4 grams of protein per serving. The cider vinegar makes a nice contrast to the peppery arugula and sweetness from the potatoes. Overall, a very simple way to get more nutrition into my family's diet.
