Spiced Sweet Potato Casserole

Forget the traditional candied yams. Start a new, healthier tradition without sacrifice.

Chef’s Note:

*Fenugreek seed is a beautiful Indian spice with a sweet, toasted maple flavor. Most noted as a digestive aid, it adds just the right touch to this holiday casserole.
