Tzimmes is a traditional sweet-and-savory Passover dish featuring dried fruit, sweet potatoes and carrots. We’ve added butternut squash for more veggie power and cooked everything in a slow cooker to make it convenient for entertaining.
- 1 1/4 pound sweet potatoes (about 2 medium) peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
- 1 pound carrots (about 6 medium) peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
- 1/2 butternut squash peeled, seeded and cut into 3/4-inch cubes (about 1 pound)
- 1 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup pitted prunes chopped
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1 1/2 cup dried apple slices cut into strips
Combine sweet potatoes, carrots, squash and dried apples in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker and toss. In a bowl, whisk together broth, honey, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Pour over vegetables and fruit. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or on high for 3 to 3 1/2 hours, until vegetable mixture is just tender. Add prunes and raisins, cover and cook on low for 1 hour more. Serve warm.
