Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Red Peppers & Onions

Saturday, January 12, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...
Here is a simple and healthy side dish you can pair with any meal!  We love roasting veggies and sweet potatoes as they always turn out delicious and couldn't be any easier!!  Tonight we're simply chopping up sweet potatoes, yellow onions, red peppers and green beans and then let our ovens get to work.   We roast them to perfection with garlic, lemon zest, chili powder and just a hint of nutty Parmesan cheese.  Yum!

This is a great side dish to any meal and a great use what you have on hand dish as you can always mix and match your veggies!  We have many dishes for you listed here that would pair nicely with this side dish, such as our baked chicken fingers or our quinoa veggie burgers!  Hope you can get a lot of use out of this idea and enjoy it as much as we do :)

Olive oil
4 cloves garlic
3 sweet potatoes
2 red peppers

1 tsp chili powder
1 lemon - for zesting only
1 tsp fresh parmesan cheese

Let's get cooking!
1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2.  Chop up sweet potatoes lengthwise into thin strips (about 1/2 inch think & we left skin on)
3.  Chop peppers and onions into thin strips
4.  Mince garlic
5.  Toss potato wedges, peppers, & onions into baking dish with olive oil, garlic, chili powder, and a tsp of lemon zest.  Place in oven and roast for 45 - 55 minutes or until potatoes are tender
6.  Cut the ends off of the green beans and add the beans to the baking dish when there is 15 minutes remaining as they don't take long to cook.  Add parmesan cheese at this point too.  Cook for remaining 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and potatoes are tender
Serves 4!  Enjoy!
