Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes With Onion

I love sweet potatoes. Research has found that sweet potatoes have several health benefits like fighting inflammation, regulating blood sugar levels, and supporting weight loss. I’m always looking for recipes for them. Today’s recipe is a naturally sweet side dish that is perfect for holiday meals and makes every meal special. If you have family members who don’t like many of the popular sweet recipes for sweet potatoes, give this savory sweet dish a try. Sweet potatoes are roasted to perfection with chunky onion wedges and garlic, then finished with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar for a tasty, easy dish.

These roasted sweet potatoes are the perfect accompaniment to all sorts of main dishes. For a mini Thanksgiving dinner any day of the year, try serving them with Slow Cooker Turkey Breast. You could also pair them with brown rice and Brussels sprouts to make a seasonal vegetable bowl.
