Jazz up your Thanksgiving table with this sweet potato recipe from the MGH Be Fit program that features seasonal spices and a healthy dose of vitamin A to help protect your body against infection.

Ingredients:

1½ pound sweet potatoes
1½ cup sliced apples (skins can be left on)
¼ cup raisins
2 tsp canola oil
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp brown sugar
3 tbsp pecans, chopped

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and chop sweet potatoes into 2” chunks. Slice apples. Add potatoes, apples, raisins, oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and brown sugar to a casserole dish. Toss to combine and cover with foil. Cook until fork-tender, approximately 45 minutes. While potatoes are cooking, toast pecans in a skillet on medium heat until they start to turn brown and give off a nutty aroma, approximately 3 minutes. When potatoes are fully cooked, top with toasted pecans and serve.

Yield: About 5 4oz servings
