Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Hazelnuts and Arugula
My mother in law had a recipe that I made for Thanksgiving(I know it's January). I'm not sure where she got the recipe from but it turned out great! I love the addition of the hazelnuts. I can't wait to have company over to make it again and it looks so pretty.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Hazelnuts and Arugula
3 or 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges(I used white and orange sweet potatoes)
2 Tbsp. Olive oil
1/2tsp salt or to taste
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 C. hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
2 C. arugula
balsamic syrup(thick balsamic) -the recipe called for 2-3 T. apple cider vinegar
Heat oven to 400F. Peel and cut potato wedges then put onto baking sheet and toss with olive oil and salt.
Roast for about 20 min., then turn over and roast for 20 more minutes or so until golden brown. Open oven and mix in the chopped garlic and hazelnuts. Roast for another 5min.
Take out of oven, plate in on a serving plate and top with arugula and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
