Marinated Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli
This recipe is NOT GRAP because it contains fruit vinegars. I have used the
dressing on broccoli alone, or broccoli with baby carrots. I have made the
dressing using a strained puree of lemon juice, umbeohi vinegar and
raspberries. And I have made it following the original recipe exactly,
which is my favorite.

From Moosewood Cookbook, Mollie Katzen
(paleo substitutions mine)

3 medium-sized sweet potatoes or yams (or 2 lbs. baby carrots)

1/2 cup walnut oil (or olive oil)
1 large clove gralic, minced
3 Tbs. lemon juice
2 Tbs. raspberry or red wine vinegar (or umbeoshi vinegar)
1.5 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. dry mustard
1 Tbs. honey
freshly ground black pepper

1 large bunch broccoli, cut into small spears

Optional garnish: thin slices of green apple
                  chopped toasted pecans

1) Peel the sweet potatoes, cut them into halves or quarters, then into 
thin slices. Steam until tender. (Steam baby carrots if substituting) 
Meanwhile, prepare the marinade.

2) Combine the marinade ingredients in a medium-large bowl. As soon as the
orange vegetable is tender, add them, still hot, to the marinade. Mix

3) Steam the broccoli until bright green and just tender. Rinse under cold
running water and drain completely. Lay the broccoli spears carefully on 
top of the salad. Cover tightly and marinate for several hours.

4) Within 15 minutes of serving, mix in the broccoli from the top. Serve
garnished with thin slices of green apple and chopped, toasted pecans.

This recipe is great with a spicy chicken (creole or jamaican)!
