Sweet and Savory Sweet Potatoes

If you feel inspired to rethink sweet potatoes this Thanksgiving, here's a simple, healthy alternative to traditional sweet potato side dishes.

The ingredients are very simple: 
4 sweet potatoes
1 leek
olive oil
kosher salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Peel the sweet potatoes and cube into 3/4" chunks.  Place in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil, and toss with hands to thoroughly coat.

Place in a 9 x 13" pan, sprinkle with a bit of salt, and roast in preheated oven for 35 mins.  While they are roasting, slice leek lengthwise and then in even, 1/4" slices.

Add to sweet potatoes and combine well.

Continue roasting another 10-15 mins., or until sweet potato cubes are fork tender.  Serve immediately.  They also reheat really well.  I also like to add the leftovers (cold) to a salad.  Yum!
