This one couldn’t be easier and is a perfect winter side-dish. It takes seconds and leaves everyone happy and satisfied.


2 Yams (or Sweet Potatoes)
2 Tablespoons


For this recipe you can easily use Champagne Vinaigrette or Red Wine Vinaigrette in place of the Apple Cider.

I know yams and sweet potatoes are different, but I have difficulty telling them apart and both work equally well in this recipe. Pictured is both Sweet Potato, and Delicata Squash, as well as a Japanese Jewel Yam which is purple with a white interior. It’s lovely and sweet with a creamy texture. It's possible to use this method on a wide variety of vegetables. 

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Cut the yams into 1 cm slices and arrange on parchment paper on a baking tray. Brush the dressing on the top side.

Place in oven for 10 minutes. Flip the Yams over, and continue to bake for another 10 minutes.

A 350 degree oven for 30 minutes will yield a softer, equally delicious result. The 450 degree oven for 20 minutes is darker and crisper.
