Roasted Cherries and Sweet Potatoes


This modified recipe from the Costco Connection (Superfresh Growers) is an excellent side dish for a summer or tropical meal. Size of sweet potato chunks will determine the cooking time: if larger than 1/2 inch, increase time by 5 min or until tender. The sorrel adds a bit of lemony flavor to mix and the lime juice adds a little tropical kick if you choose.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 F

Wash sweet potatoes and remove any bad spots and ends; otherwise, leave peeling intact if it is smooth and clean. Cut sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch chunks, then cut cherries in half and remove pits. Coarsely chop walnuts. Put all of it into a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Add half of parsley. Stir ingredients to coat evenly. Pour onto baking sheet with parchment paper.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes then sprinkle on remaining parsley and sorrel/lime juice if used.
