Gingered Sweet Potatoes

by Megan Elliott

Ginger in savory dishes like
this one during the holiday season tastes good with the Thanksgiving fare.  Any combination can be used, but the basic premise is sweet potatoes, winter squash, carrots, corn, orange rind, orange juice and ginger.  It's very seasonal, no?  Here's that recipe.
Mine will feed about 6-8 as a side dish.  It's hearty, so the portions will probably be small.

  • 3-4 sweet potatoes, washed, peeled and diced
  • 1 smallish winter squash, peeled, cleaned and cubed
  • 4 good-sized carrots, washed and diced
  • 2 ears of corn, kernels removed
  • grated rind of ½ an orange
  • juice of same orange
  • 2 tbls grated ginger
  • 2 tbls olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


Place ingredients in a baking dish or vegetable roaster and coat with the olive oil, salt and pepper.  Put in a pre-heated 400-degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring occasionally. 

    I put ground ginger and lemon juice on some sautéed vegetables that I made the other night.  What a yummy combo.  Pumpkin gingerbread is soooooo good warm with some butter on it.  Ginger in hot apple cider.  Wow!! 
   Getting any ideas yet?  Well, then go get some ginger.
