Honey roasted yams
These tasty little tubers are in season and are absolutely delicious roasted. The honey will caramelise giving this dish a sweet and crispy finish, the perfect accompaniment to a winter roast.
- 500g yams
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Cut yams in half if necessary.
- Toss all ingredients together in a baking dish until yams are well coated.
- Bake in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until tender.
