Maple Ginger Sweet Potatoes
Prep Time: 1 Hour
Yields: 6 Servings
Comment: With only 5 grams of
carbs per serving, this sweet side dish goes well with almost any
low carb entrée. The maple and ginger glaze gives the sweet
potatoes a wonderful flavor. Sweet potatoes are a nutrient dense
carb, therefore it would be best to only have this side dish every
once in a while.
4 sweet potatoes, peeled
1/3 cup sugar-free maple syrup
1 ½ tsps grated fresh ginger
3 tbsps butter, cut in small pieces
butter for greasing pan
Heat oven to 350°F. Cut potatoes in 1-inch slices and cook in
lightly salted boiling water 8 minutes until almost tender. Drain
well. While potatoes are cooking, heat syrup and ginger in a small
saucepan. Cook 3 minutes on low to allow flavors to blend. Set aside.
Butter a 2.5-quart casserole dish and arrange potatoes in a single
layer. Pour syrup mixture over potatoes. Dot with butter. Cover
with foil and bake 35 minutes, or until potatoes are very soft.
