Thanksgiving Yams and Apples

 Yams and Apples

Yams and Apples

2 pounds yams, peeled and cubed into 

1-inch chunks

3-4 apples of choice, cored and cut into 

1-inch chunks

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoons fresh thyme

1/4 cup sugar-free maple syrup

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus zest

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place prepared yams and apples in a large bowl. Mix the rest of the ingredients together, pour over the yams and apples, and toss until they are all coated evenly.

Line a large, rimmed cookie sheet with tin foil. Spread mixture onto the cookie sheet in one thin layer (use 2 cookie sheets if needed) and cook for about 40 minutes or until apples and yams are soft, stirring every 10 minutes.

Serve warm and enjoy! This is a great side dish for Thanksgiving dinner.
