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