Sweet Potatoes with Balsamic Maple Glaze

2 lb sweet potatoes, cut into 1" cubes
3 peeled and minced shallots
3 TBSP olive oil, divided
3 TBSP real maple syrup, divided
2 TBSP Balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, toss the sweet potatoes with 2 Tbsp oil and 2 Tbsp
maple syrup until well coated. Spread the sweet potatoes on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Make sure they are spread out well so that they roast evenly.

Roast sweet potatoes in oven for 20-25 minutes, giving a toss halfway through. Roast until fork-tender.

While sweet potatoes are in the oven, saute the shallots in a small saucepan with 1 Tbsp oil until shallots are soft. Add Balsamic vinegar and the remaining 1 Tbsp maple syrup. Simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes until sauce is slightly reduced and thickened. Remove from heat.

Remove sweet potatoes from oven and transfer to medium serving bowl. Drizzle with the sauce and toss to coat.
