Sweet Potato & Pearls
SPRING FEAST RECIPE: WEEK OF UNLEAVENED
Preheat oven to 400˚.
Toss the sweet potatoes and shallots with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Roast for 25 minutes until tender and starting to brown.
Remove from oven, sprinkle spice mix and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over the sweet potatoes, stir until everything is well combined, and return to the oven for 5 minutes.
Serve sweet potatoes with a healthy scoop or two of couscous.
Note: 1Pearled Couscous Cooking Directions:
In saucepan, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and brown couscous about 5 minutes, and then add 1 ½ cups of boiling water or vegetable broth. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on lower heat until water is absorbed, approximately 6-12 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff with fork, and serve.
If you don’t have Za’atar, you can use the spice mix in the ingredients section instead. This recipe serves 3 and is a very light meal; a perfect way to break a fast during the year as well—when it is not a feast week, of course.
