Baked Purple Yams

September 5, 2016


Around in the markets only a few years, the ubiquitous purple yam is delicious and easy to prepare. Don’t believe everything you find on the interweb. Some sites say that this rather tough veggie needs 90 minutes to bake.

Not so.

Pare or peel these ugly veggies and you will be stunned by the rich purple colour revealed. Cut into 1” pieces. Spread a little olive oil on a baking pan. Spread the chopped yams and flavour with a little salt and pepper. Throw in a few garlic cloves and bake at 375° for ~ 20 minutes tossing once half way through. Serve as a side dish with your main course.


From Jilly’s kitchen to yours.

I don’t have a pic of these yams (yet), so enjoy the owls. That’s Bobby and Jilly at their best.

Thanks for following Jilly’s blog all this time.
