Cider-Roasted Sweet Potatoes Phase 2
Recipe from The South Beach Diet - Parties & Holidays Cookbook

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes

The tasty skin of sweet potatoes offers abundant fiber, and the flesh supplies a hearty dose of vitamins B6 and C, as well as potassium and iron. Remember that cider is drizzled on for flavor here; save drinking a full glass of cider for Phase 3.

6 medium sweet potatoes (about 3 pounds), sliced into 8 wedges each
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon salt
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
⅓ cup unsweetened apple cider

Heat oven to 400F. Toss together potato slices, oil, cinnamon, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Transfer to a large baking dish and drizzle with cider. Roast until lightly browned and cooked through, about 30 minutes.
