Yam Fries



It's time to yam it up? Get it.  Yam it up. har har har. *crickets* Sorry, that was my bad attempt at being funny. Yams or should I say sweet potato. There's a couple different varieties out there. Mostly a lot of people are familiar with the orange variety. But there's also the white and purple variety. For these I used the white variety. They're oven fried and seasoned with herbs. They're great alone or serve them with a sandwich or burger. The possibilities are endless.




Yam Fries

3 medium yam or sweet potatoes
salt
1 Tbsp dry Basil
1 Tbsp dry thyme
1 Tbsp dry rosemary
1 1/2 Tbsp Extra Vigrin Olive oil
salt


Preheat your oven to 400˚F

Wash, peel and cut the yams into 1/4-inch strips. Place them in a bowl and toss together with the olive oil and dry herbs.

Lay them out on a lightly greased baking sheet and baked for 30-minutes. Give them a quick toss halfway through to give them an even browning.

When they are done season with a little salt before serving.

I think that yams quite possibly might be my next favorite food, after avocados, of course. Love these fries. I think I have a few yams hanging out in my pantry, so I might make some of these for lunch tomorrow!

Yum, these look spectacular, I'd never be able to stop with just one. On an entirely separate note, I got some ube ice cream today and it was awesome. There was a Filipino food producer at the Fancy Food Show and that was my favorite flavor.
