Low-Fat Roasted Sweet Potatoes

You Won't Miss the Marshmallows in These Maple-Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Despite tasting more like dessert, sweet potato casserole perseveres as a staple of the classic Thanksgiving meal. And while marshmallows can liven up a cup of cocoa, all they do to this root veggie is weigh it down in sugar and hard-to-pronounce ingredients. When it comes to meals that are healthful and taste good, simpler is better, which is what you'll find when you make this dish of maple-roasted sweet potatoes and yams. The sweetness of the veggies is still the star of the dish, minus all the calories, fat, and sugar found in the classic.
