Sweet Potato-Pear Tzimmes

This recipe is from the vegan cookbook Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero.

Recipe: see page 156 or Veganomicon.
This is a casserole that tastes great and is also very nutritious.  It gets roasted a long time inthe oven until the sweet potatoes become chewy on the outside. The pecans become toasted and add a nice crunch. There is only a tablespoon of maple syrup, so it is not overly sweet. This is listed as a casserole in the book, but this would also make a great dessert.

Ingredients: sweet potato, pears, pecans, golden raisins, cinnamon, mirin, vegetable oil, salt and maple syrup.
