Hi. I'm Cat Dillon, and today we're going to do some caramelized roasted maple squash. This is a great recipe. You're going to find that I use a little bit less maple syrup just because I don't like eating my entrée feeling like I'm eating a dessert. So, let's go through the ingredients. We've got some potatoes here. I've actually cut up some Japanese sweet potatoes, which are a little bit more starchy, little bit less sweet, some regular sweet potatoes here. And, what I'm going to do is I'm going to give you some ingredients. We've got coconut oil, maple syrup, fresh thyme, sea salt and pepper. I'm just going to show you, it's very simple. I'm just going to put it right into the bowl. I always want to use a bigger bowl because when you toss this, you want everything to be coated evenly. So, I love sweet potatoes, just the pigment, the anthocyanins in the sweet potato, are a wonderful compound for fighting many diseases, such as cancer and diabetes. Great, great thing to add to your repertoire of vegetables. Got about two tablespoons of thyme here, again, we've got two tablespoons of each, coconut oil and maple syrup and just a little bit of salt and some fresh ground pepper. And, all I'm going to do is just toss it evenly. This will be a great, great side dish to any kind of poultry dish or roasted meat dish, great for the holidays. And, all I'm going to do is put this on a sheet tray and it goes right into the oven at 400 degrees. Keep an eye on it. You're going to probably want to rotate your pan or maybe kind of work in these sweet potatoes a little bit, probably about halfway through. Set your timer for 20 minutes or so and then look at it halfway and do your little tossing. Alright, that's it. We're going to put this in the oven at 400 degrees. And there we have it, the roasted maple-glazed sweet potatoes. Always save a little bit of your herb that you're using for garnish, always have the same type of elements that you're having in your final product as a garnish.
