Roasted yam

Now that you have your kale pancakes, you’ll need something to put on them.

Here’s what I happened to make this time.

First the roasted yam.

Heat your oven to 350 degrees, then in a glass casserole dish add:

  • Large diced yam
  • Large diced onion
  • a drizzle of olive oil
  • sprinkle of salt and pepper

When I’m going to roast yams like this I usually first cut them into rounds.

Then I cut those rounds down the middle and then into either quarters or sixths depending on the size of the round.  This assures that you are getting a bit of skin on every part of your dice, which gets nice and crispy when you roast them.

Then dice up a regular onion into nice chunky bits and then toss all of the ingredients together in your roasting pan.

Bake until the onions are caramelized and the potatoes get a nice brown on them.  Crispy on the outside and soft in the centre.

This is a delightful combination because they are both sweet and savory at the same time.

The roasted yam is a great side dish at anytime.

  1. perfect timing. i have some purple yams from the farmers’ market and wasn’t quite sure what to do with them. roasted purple yams coming up! thanks for sharing.

    • Glad to be of service! Add a few toasted walnuts and a little blue cheese (if that’s your thing) and you have delectable yam salad!!
