Recipe: Persian Sweet Potatoes
Active Time: 20 Minutes | Total Time: 1 Hour 20 Minutes | Yield: 12 Servings
8 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 cup light brown sugar
1- 2 drops rose water (optional)
3 lbs small garnet sweet potatoes, similar size
Special Equipment – large bowl, mandolin, 9X13 baking dish
1 Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
2 Combine butter, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, coriander, pepper, brown sugar and if desired, rose water in the bottom of a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
3 Slice sweet potatoes in 1/8-inch thick slices. Dump them into the large bowl with the brown sugar sauce and toss to coat.
4 Arrange the sliced potatoes in a 9×13 baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray in curvy rows. Drizzle over any remaining sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 375 degrees until tender, about 50-60 minutes.
Rose water is found in speciality stores or can be ordered on the internet. It’s potent so a little goes a long way. The addition of it in this recipe smacks of Persian cuisine.
Without a mandolin, slice the sweet potatoes with a sharp knife in 1/8-inch even slices.
Serve this dish at any dinner during the Fall when sweet potatoes are in season. They are especially delicious on your holiday buffet where the warmth of the spices and the beautiful presentation will ‘wow’ guests.
For a special sweet potato pie, use 1/2 half recipe. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise before slicing. Arrange coated sweet potatoes in a circular pattern in a 9-inch pie dish lined with pie pastry. Bake at 400 degrees for 60 minutes.
- Exchange garnet sweet potatoes for light orange or cream colored flesh varieties of sweet potatoes or yams.
