This is the single best yam recipe I’ve ever tasted. Even those not partial to yams will instantly become converts. The natural sugar in the yams caramelizes under the high temperature at which they bake. Don’t worry if a few pieces char ... These taste even better!
Ron’s Oven-Roasted Yams:
1 yam, peeled and diced 3/4-in. (19 mm)
1/4 c. (60 mL) olive oil
2 tsp. seasoning salt
Preheat oven’s convect setting to 375 deg. F. (or 400 deg. F. in regular oven). Place prepared yams in medium bowl (see Note). Combine olive oil and seasoning salt, pouring over yams and stirring until diced yams are evenly coated.
Line baking sheet with parchment. Bake, uncovered, 45 min., flipping two or three times as yams roast.
