  • Summary

    In Epi's 3-Ingredient Recipes series, we show you how to make great food with just three ingredients (plus staples like oil, salt, and pepper). Maple syrup pumps up the flavor of puréed sweet potatoes and provides a sweet glaze for extra-peppery candied pecans in this classic Thanksgiving side.

    Ingredients

    • Olive oil (for pan)
    • 5 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1 1/2" pieces
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided, plus more
    • 1 1/4 cups pure maple syrup, divided
    • 2 cups pecan halves (about 7 ounces)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, divided
