Updated September 20, 2016


  • 3
    tablespoons olive oil
  • 2
    medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices (about 12 oz each)
  • 1
    leek, sliced (white and light green part only)
  • 1/4
    cup chicken broth
  • 2
    tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 1
    tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2
    tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2
    teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4
    cup Cascadian Farm™ Farm Stand Harvest organic cherry, almond and quinoa granola
  • 2
    tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3
    cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In 12-inch ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes; cook 5 minutes, gently stirring to keep potatoes from sticking to pan.
  • 2
    Add leek; cook 3 minutes longer, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium.

    Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix chicken broth, syrup, vinegar, 1 tablespoon of the thyme leaves and the salt. Pour over ingredients in skillet. Cover; cook 10 minutes, gently stirring occasionally.

    Meanwhile, in another small bowl, mix granola, melted butter, Parmesan cheese and remaining 1 tablespoon thyme leaves. Sprinkle granola mixture over ingredients in skillet. Place in oven; bake uncovered 15 to 18 minutes or until granola mixture is light golden brown. If desired, top with additional fresh thyme leaves.

  • Sweet potatoes are available in varieties ranging from pale skin with light yellow flesh to dark orange or red skin and flesh. In this recipe, we love to use a mix of the yellow flesh and orange or red flesh sweet potatoes.
  • No cover for your skillet? Use heavy-duty foil, and secure it tightly on top of skillet.
