Roasted Sweet Potatoes/Yams with Pecans with Hemp Seeds

You can make this festive dish with yams or sweet potatoes or a combination of both. Generally speaking, yams are sweeter than sweet potatoes. Serve it for the Thanksgiving holidays or anytime you want to warm up the house with the sweet aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Serves 6 to 8

8 cups sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup pecan halves
4 tablespoons melted Organic Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons Organic Coconut Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg, preferably freshly grated
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup Organic hemp seeds

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

Combine all of the ingredients in a 9x13x2 inch baking dish and toss until the yams are evenly coated. Bake, stirring occasionally for 50 to 60 minutes, until the yams are tender. Taste, and adjust the seasonings if desired. Let it cool slightly and serve garnished with hemp seeds.
