Sweet Potatoes, Apples, Walnuts & Raisins*

(Modified from www.DrFuhrman.com).

The fruit makes this dish sweet, almost dessert-like.   It is delicious, and very impressive at pot lucks.    


4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely diced 

3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup raisins (or 8 medjol dates, pitted & chopped or 12 pitted deglet noor dates, chopped)

2 teasp cinnamon


Steam sweet potatoes for about 10 minutes,

Then add the apples and cook for another few minutes until soft.

Pour potatoes and apples into a large bowl and mix with remaining ingredients.

Then pour the mixture into one or two baking dishes and bake at 350 degrees uncovered for 30 minutes.

Serve hot or cold.

(Note: if too dry for your taste, may mix in water or apple sauce if desired).

(For the sake of simplicity, this recipe was modified from the original by omitting 1/4 teaspoon each of dried ginger and nutmeg, and ¾ cup of apple sauce; these ingredients are optional.  Another modification is raisins since they're more available than dates).
