This side dish is one of our favorites. We eat it quite often with my Whole Roasted Chicken Recipe. The carmelized yams and carrots are a nice addition to any meat dish.
Roasted Yams and Carrots Recipe
2 medium yams
1 long carrot
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel the yams. Cut them in half, then in half again, and cut each piece into three more pieces. Put the yam pieces in a single layer in a 9x12 pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Peel the carrot and cut it into four pieces to match the size of the yam and add them to the pan with the yams. Drizzle a little olive oil over the yams and carrots, and salt and pepper to taste.
Cover the pan with a sheet of aluminum foil and roast for 50 minutes. Remove the aluminum foil and roast for 10 more minutes (1 hour total roasting time). Serves 4 as a side dish.
