For my Hanukah dinner I wanted something traditional to go along with matzo ball soup. tzimmes of course. But it has been years(if ever) I made it. Usually it is too sweet for me. So I read a plethora of recipes and came up with this one. I wanted to make it on the stovetop because since I put my solar system in I found that the oven uses a ton of power. It came out so well that I wanted to eat it and not even share.


  • 1# carrots
  • 2# sweet potatoes
  • 2 TBSP of oil
  • 3/4 cup prunes, cut in halves.
  • 1 onion large
  • 1.5 cups orange juice
  • 1 TBSP honey or maple syrup if you don’t eat honey.


  1. Chop onion in big chunks.
  2. Add oil to a heavy bottom pan, heat on medium and put in onion.
  3. Peel the carrots and cut into 2″ pieces
  4. Add carrots on top of onions.
  5. Peel sweet potatoes, chop in bit sized pieces and add to onions and carrots.
  6. Stir, add  orange juice and 1/2 tsp salt.
  7. Cover and cook until veggies are soft, about 45 minutes.
  8. Add honey and prunes and cook for 5 more minutes. Let cool and serve.
  9. Or even better make ahead of time and serve the next day.
