3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Create the sauce by combining orange juice, maple syrup, salt and spices. Whisk together and set aside.
Spray the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick spray. Begin with a layer of sweet potato on the bottom. Top with a layer of pomegranate arils and then a layer of sauce. Continue layering until all the ingredients are used.

Remove tin foil and add chopped pecans and brown sugar to the top of the bake.
Bake for another 15 minutes or until the brown sugar has caramelized.
