An easy Thanksgiving side dish that’s totally vegan and only requires 7 ingredients! Full of texture, not too sweet, and a big crowd-pleaser.


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into ~1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • salt + pepper, to taste
  • a few handfuls of granola (maple-flavored or otherwise!)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine your sweet potatoes, maple syrup, oil, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper. Mix to coat, then dump all of the contents onto your prepared baking sheet, spreading into an even layer.
  3. Cover tightly with aluminum foil, then bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Carefully remove the potatoes from the oven, uncover, and toss with a spatula.
  5. Return to an even layer, cover, and bake again for an additional 15 minutes.
  6. Carefully remove the cover and bake for another 5 minutes, or until done to your liking. At this point, your potatoes should be soft and slightly caramelized. The maple syrup burns quickly when the potatoes are uncovered, be vigilant!
  7. Carefully remove the pan from the oven, and scoop your potatoes (and any liquid) into your serving plate/platter/bowl. Top with lots of granola, and serve with additional granola on the side!
