Dried cranberries and pecans are my go to accompaniments. The flavors are very complementary and it’s very easy to whip together a last minute side dish to serve with dinner or at holiday gatherings.

Sweet potatoes vary dramatically in size so I typically aim to buy average sized potatoes that are uniform in shape and easy to work with. Roasting is the perfect way to enhance their natural sweetness.

Dried cranberries are a wonderful pantry staple that I always keep on hand. They add just the right amount of tartness to balance the sweetness of the sweet potatoes!
