Easy // 10 mins prep // per each
Beautiful, delicious & versatile. Takes minutes to prep, and only an hour to roast in the oven to fill your house with a rich, spiced fragrance.
- 1 large Yam
- 1 Pear
- 1/2 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1 Tbs Brown Sugar
- 1 Pinch Citrus Sea Salt
Wash the yam & put onto a parchment lined baking sheet into a cold oven. Set the temp to 475 and a timer for 45 mins. Meanwhile, dice the pear & toss w/ the flavoring ingredients. Set it aside and let macerate while the yam roasts.
Test the yam w/ a fork or pairing knife. When it is tender throughout, split it down the middle and add the pear mixture. Return to the oven for 15 more mins.
Serve as a side dish with dinner, or dress it up as we did for dessert.
This is a great way to use extra large yams. We used it to make a dessert stack w/ maple granola squares from Trader Joes & dark chocolate squares. We also used it to flavor our ice cream in a bag.
