Stir Fried Orange Walnut Sweet Potatoes. A quick and easy, yet intensely flavourful side dish that’s perfect with roast chicken, duck or turkey. A terrific Thanksgiving side dish too.
Today we have a delicious side dish for practically any meal, Stir Fried Orange Walnut Sweet Potatoes. As a one oven household, I like stove top recipes like this, especially during the Holidays when the oven is already doing double duty with the turkey, stuffing, roasted potatoes etc.
The sweet potatoes go so well with the orange in this recipe and I absolutely love the crunch of the toasted walnuts too but if you don’t like walnuts, toasted pecans, cashews or macadamia nuts are also good substitutes.
These also make a delicious addition to a Thanksgiving meal too. Check out more dishes like this in this post on Our Most Popular Thanksgiving Side Dishes.
