This crazy little recipe is so healthy and easy you may never boil your yams or sweet potatoes again.
Roasted and Mashed Honey Yams
This dish is more dessert-like than savory, almost tempting me to top my portion with whipped cream.
2 1/2 pounds yams or sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup water
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Peel yams with a potato peeler and trim any tough woody edges off. Dice the potatoes into about 1-inch size pieces. Place them in baking dish. Drizzle with honey, salt and water. Cover dish with foil.
3. Baked at 350 for 50 minutes, or until fork tender. Carefully remove foil and mash yams in the dish. Move to a serving bowl.
4. Top with a little vegan butter or butter if desired, but I like to leave mine plain.
