This delicious side dish is packed with nutrition. Sweet potatoes, onions and almonds are powerhouses of antioxidants and other nutrients -- in fact, almonds are among the most nutrient-dense foods, containing high concentrations of vitamins and minerals per calorie. Plus, olive oil and almonds contain monounsaturated fat -- the good type.
Oranges are hollowed out and filled with mashed sweet potatoes, orange juice, eggs, vanilla extract and butter. A sweet, buttery pecan topping is spooned on top, and the oranges are baked. This is a sweet treat that's impressive and tasty.
