2 lbs sweet potatoes, washed and cut into 2 inch pieces
¼ cup pure maple syrup, plus 1 Tbsp
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup tahini
3 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 small garlic clove, minced
3 Tbsp water
½ cup shaved feta cheese (feta in brine is best or ricotta salata)
¼ cup toasted pecans
2 Tbsp pomegranate seeds
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Arrange sweet potatoes in even layer on large baking tray, being careful not to overlap. In small bowl combine ¼ cup maple and olive oil. Pour mixture over sweet potatoes, and toss to coat. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until golden brown, flipping halfway through.
Meanwhile make the tahini dressing by adding tahini, vinegar, garlic, and 1 Tbsp maple syrup to a medium bowl. Whisk to combine then slowly add water until creamy and pourable. You may need to add a bit more water to thin. Season well with salt and pepper.
To serve, arrange roasted sweet potatoes on a platter, drizzle tahini dressing over top. Top with feta cheese, toasted pecans, and pomegranate seeds.
