Vegetarian Tzimmes (Pareve) 
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Baking Time: 45 minutes to 1 hour

8 Sweet potatoes, peeled and cut in chunks
1-1/2 pounds carrots, peeled and cut in chunks
1 cup pitted prunes, cut in half
1 cup apricots, cut in half
2 cups boiled water
1-1/2 cups orange juice
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
pinch cinnamon
juice of one lemon
1 can pineapple chunks, drained
1 can mandarin orange segments, drained
Vegetable oil for pan

Place the cut prunes and apricots in the boiled water in a bowl and set aside for 10 minutes.
Generously oil a covered, oven-proof casserole dish. Place the carrots and sweet potatoes in 
the casserole, and mix. Drain the apricots and prunes and add them to the casserole dish. Save the water.
In a small bowl, mix the orange juice, lemon juice, cinnamon and dark brown sugar. Pour over the vegetables. 
Cover the casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Check often and add some of the water from 
the apricots and prunes if the orange juice evaporates. At this point, add the pineapple and orange segments, 
if desired, and mix well. Bake uncovered for another 15 minutes.
