Ingredients
  1. 3¼ pounds sweet potatoes, scrubbed well and cut into 1-inch chunks
  2. 2 tablespoons Olivia's Blood Orange Olive Oil
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  5. 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
Pecans
  1. 2 cups pecans
  2. 2 tablespoon Olivia's Maple Balsamic
  3. 1 teaspoon finely minced rosemary leaves
  4. 1/4 teaspoon each salt and freshly ground black pepper
Prepare the sweet potatoes
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a 3-quart shallow casserole dish, toss the sweet potatoes with Blood Orange Olive Oil, salt, and pepper.
  2. Spread evenly and roast until almost tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Stir into the sweet potatoes.
  4. Return to the oven and roast until the sweet potatoes are tender and the liquid thickened, about 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the pecans
  1. On a parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheet, toss the pecans, Maple Balsamic, rosemary, salt and pepper until evenly coated.
  2. Spread in a single layer on the prepared pan.
  3. Bake, stirring once, until toasted and glazed, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool on the pan on a wire rack, stirring occasionally, until completely cool and crisp.
  4. Mash the hot sweet potatoes with the pan juices to your desired consistency. Spread evenly in the pan.
  5. Coarsely chop the pecans and sprinkle on top just before serving the dish hot or warm.
