  Candied Sweet Potatoes

It's possible that there's a holiday right around the corner, and if there's anything better than actually celebrating Thanksgiving itself, it's the weeks of brainstorming and testing recipes that lead up to T-Day. (Oh, and did we mention the VegNews Holiday Cookbook? It might help with your planning!) These sweet potatoes from VN contributor Nava Atlas are so easy to throw together, you'll have time to whip up another side dish or two.

Serves 6

What You Need:

2 tablespoons non-hydrogenated margarine, melted
Juice of 2 oranges (1/2 to 3/4 cup)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
5 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick

What You Do:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine margarine, orange juice, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice, and stir until well combined. Add sweet potatoes, stir well, and transfer to a lightly oiled 9x13 baking dish.

2. Cover and bake until the sweet potatoes are just tender, about 40 minutes. Stir once or twice during that time to distribute the liquid over the potatoes. Uncover, and bake until the glaze thickens, about 10 to 15 minutes. Cover and keep warm until ready to serve.
