Claire's Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes


5 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and Pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Arrange sweet potatoes in an even layer in a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish sprayed with a non-stick spray or lightly coated with a bit of olive oil if you use a metal baking pan.

Combine maple syrup, butter, lemon juice, salt and pepper in small bowl. Pour the mixture over the sweet potatoes; toss to coat.

Cover with lid or tightly with foil and bake the sweet potatoes for 15 minutes. Uncover, stir and cook, stirring every 15 minutes, until tender and starting to brown, 45 to 50 minutes more.
