I think that we all will be asked to bring a side dish to one holiday occasion or another in the near future. This #petesplates dish is very old school French, not coincidentally also very paleo.
Sweet Potatoes and Pears stewed in Ghee, Cloves and Bay Leaf Serves 4 (just multiply recipe as needed of whatever size gathering you’re attending)
2 medium sweet potatoes sliced in half then in long strips, like the pears(3 cups)
2 pears sliced lengthwise to maintain shape (2 cups)
1 yellow onion julienne (1 cups)
2 T ghee
1 bay leaf
2 t salt
1/2 cup chicken stock or broth
3 T chopped fresh parsley
Slice all the vegetables then add half the ghee to a large sauté pan on medium heat. After three minutes of heating add onions and a pinch of salt and stir. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until softened, then add pears and another pinch of salt. Cook for five minutes then add, sweet potatoes, cloves, bay leaf and chicken stock. Cook stirring occasionally on medium high for 12 minutes, season to taste and toss parsley to finish. Remove clove and bay leaf!
