Holiday Entertaining: Balsamic Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Walnuts and Cranberries
I really enjoy sweet potatoes. And I love creating new and different ways to enjoy them! This is a very tasty dish with some great flavor combinations. To keep the sweet potatoes vegan, I served the bleu cheese crumbles on the side, making them optional.
