  1. Check 3pounds sweet potatoes
  2. Check 1tablespoon olive oil
  3. Check 1 onion
  4. Check 1 celery stalk
  5. Check 1 apple

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F.
  2. Prick the potatoes with a fork, place on a baking sheet, and roast until tender, 40 to 45 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery, and apple and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 10 to 12 minutes.
