Serves: 6 servings

Ingredients
3 sweet potatoes
1½ cups apple juice
⅓ cup agave nectar
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. grated lemon zest
½ tsp. sea salt
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Juice of one half lemon

Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cover sweet potatoes with cold water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and allow potatoes to simmer until just tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Drain sweet potatoes and set aside, allowing to cool. Cut potatoes into ¼-inch thick slices and lay them in a large baking dish (or a few smaller dishes) coated with cooking spray. Do not overlap potatoes.

Meanwhile, combine apple juice, agave nectar, nutmeg, cinnamon, zest and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and then simmer over low heat for about 8 minutes, whisking often.

Add in olive oil and lemon juice and stir until sauce becomes a thick syrup. Pour the warm syrup over the sweet potatoes and place baking dish in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve immediately, enjoy!
