This recipe was made for anyone with an insatiable sweet tooth. You know, the eaters who usually need an extra nudge to eat their veggies. With cinnamon-spiced sweet potatoes and a maple syrup glaze, there will be no shortage of candy-like flavors on the plate, nor of nutrients like vitamin A. But because this is dinnertime, there are still savory elements to anchor it all, like meaty pork chops and crisp, garlicky green beans.

Boil Sweet Potatoes
Boil Sweet Potatoes
1

Wash and dry all produce. Peel sweet potatoes, then cut into ½-inch cubes. Place in a large pot with enough water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook until easily pierced by a knife, about 12 minutes. Remove from pot with a slotted spoon. Place in a large bowl, keeping pot of boiling water on stove.

While sweet potatoes cook, heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Season pork all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook to desired doneness, 4-6 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside. Meanwhile, mince 1 clove garlic (use the other as you like).

Add green beans to pot with boiling water and cook until tender but still a little crisp, 3-4 minutes. Drain and return to pot along with ½ TBSP butter and a pinch of garlic. Toss until butter melts and coats green beans. Season with salt, pepper, and more garlic (to taste, but save a little for the glaze).

Let bubble and reduce until slightly syrupy, about 1 minute. Return pan to medium heat and add remaining maple syrup. Simmer until thick and glaze-like, about 2 minutes.
