Description

Skinny mashed yams are delicious year around with BBQ, pork and chicken. Don’t just wait for the holidays!

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Large Yams, Peeled And Cubed
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons Sea Salt
  • ¾ cups Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper Or To Taste
  • Milk, As Needed If Yams Are Dry

Preparation

In a large saucepan add yams, cinnamon, sea salt and water. Cover and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn heat to low. Check yams after 15 minutes to make sure there is liquid still in the bottom of the pan; if not, add another 1/4 cup water to prevent burning and check yams for doneness. Re-cover and continue to cook yams for another 5 minutes or until fork tender. Do not drain.

Remove lid and allow yams to sit for 3 minutes. Add butter and pepper. Mash yams with a potato masher until smooth and creamy. Add a splash of milk if needed.
