The fresh juicy flavors of summer are in full swing right now and I’m loving finding new ways to enjoy them in meals and snacks. Getting inspiration from the season is my favorite way to infuse fun and excitement in the kitchen — something I totally recommend if you feel like you’re in a cooking rut.

BBQ roasted chickpeas add crunch and smokiness to these summer inspired sweet potatoes made with delicious  Organic Campari® tomatoes, avocado, corn and fresh cilantro. They’re easy to cook up and assemble and make for a super fresh and plant-forward meal. 

These would also be perfect alongside any main dish at your summer BBQ and you can even grill the sweet potatoes before topping them with the tomato salad.  A great way to add more plants (and fiber!) to your backyard BBQ!

The star ingredient in this recipe are definitely the Organic Campari® tomatoes from SUNSET®. At just the right size and with the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity, they add so much juicy flavor to this easy summer recipe! Perfect for everything from salads, pizzas, and pasta, they’re definitely a staple worth always having on hand. 

SUNSET® produce is always in my cart at the grocery store because of its unmatched quality and their overall dedication to freshness and innovation in the produce department. I love their unique variety of tomatoes, especially these Organic Campari® tomatoes. 

The fresh flavors of the tomatoes along with the smoky chickpeas and cool avocado come together to tie everything and the sweet potato together really well. It’s sort of like a salad in a sweet potato and I’m all about it!

roasted sweet potatoes with apples and fresh cranberries

I’m so excited to share this really simple and delicious side dish recipe with you that my mom makes for Thanksgiving every year. Thanksgiving would definitely not be the same without this roasted sweet potato, apple and cranberries side dish, that goes with the stuffing, greens beans, and turkey perfectly.

The tart-sweetness from the fresh cranberries complement the sweetness from the apples and sweet potatoes perfectly. When they’re all roasted together and tender with a little brown sugar, they’re just so good! Plus, this side dish recipe

Yes, as a dietitian I’m all about making healthy swaps on a daily basis to have a well-rounded and nutritious diet, however, when it comes to Thanksgiving, I firmly believe it’s ok to enjoy those memory-filled family recipes just the way they are. Having a healthy relationship with food means sometimes you don’t try to “healthify” it, you just enjoy it as is. This recipe is the perfect example of that!

Plus, let’s not forget that apples, sweet potatoes and cranberries contain lots of good nutrition and antioxidants to boot. Totally ok if they’re covered in butter and sugar for Thanksgiving!

Roasted sweet potatoes with apples and cranberries make for a delicious Thanksgiving side dish! Simply make with sweet potatoes, apples, fresh cranberries, cinnamon, butter and brown sugar.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 45 mins
Servings 3 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 4 large sweet potatoes. peeled and cubed or cut into half moon shapes
  • 3-4 apples peeled and cut into thin slices
  • 1/3 cup fresh cranberries
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp. butter melted
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes and apples. I like cutting the sweet potatoes into a half moon shape and same with the apples. Cubed for both would also work.
  • Melt butter in the microwave by heating for 15 second increments until melted. 
  • Toss the sweet potatoes, apples and cranberries together in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon and sugar. Pour melted butter on top and mix everything together until all the pieces are covered in sugar and brown sugar.
  • Place mixture into a baking dish and bake for 30-45 minutes until the sweet potatoes are folk tender. I recommend using a spoon to mix everything about halfway through cooking so that it bakes evenly.
