2 cloves garlic, peeled
8 sprigs (½ bunch) fresh flat-leaf parsley, stems removed, plus 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
4 tablespoons orange juice
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
½ teaspoon salt
Several grinds of freshly ground black pepper
⅓ cup dried cranberries
Place the garlic, parsley sprigs, sweet potatoes, orange juice, lemon juice, and zest, olive oil, 1 tablespoon of the maple syrup, salt, and pepper in the bowl of a food processor equipped with a steel blade. Pulse until the sweet potatoes are well chopped, but not puréed. Remove to an attractive serving bowl.
Adjust the seasonings, sprinkle with the dried cranberries and the remaining chopped parsley, and serve.
