Sweet potatoes are usually a holiday favorite and this recipe will not disappoint.  The freshness of the orange juice and lemon zest give a fresh twist. Sweet potatoes are naturally high in fiber, so it is a recommended food for diverticulosis.

    I have not made this dish because the directions say both sugar with the flour and there is only brown sugar listed in the recipe that I read.

    A very tasty side dish that complimented the roasted chicken I made for the family. Everyone loved it.
