Sweet Potato and Carrots with Pecans and Raisins

I'm so tired of the same old side dishes. I had a sweet potato and a carrot sitting around, and thought they would be perfect together! Boy was I right!! This side dish will defiantly be a repeat!! I really enjoyed it!!! We had it along side pan-fried halibut and a side garden salad. Delicious meal!

  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into small pieces
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  1. Place carrots and sweet potato in a medium pot and cover with water. Cook over medium heat until soft (about 20 minutes).
  2. Drain and mash with butter, brown sugar and apple sauce.
  3. Mix in pecans and raisins! Amazing :)
