Candied Yams! Delicious! Definately not the most healthy food in the world-- although yams are very good for you-- this traditional rendition involves marshmallows and brown sugar. Still, as an alternative to say cheesecake, or a pint of ben and jerrys, I guess you can call this "healthy"
1 Yam, cubed and boiled
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2-1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
enough mini marshmallows to cover surface
Mash the boiled yam pieces and add the brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Press mashed mixture into an oven save dish (I used an approx 9 x 5 oval). Press mallows gently into surface, bake at 350F until mallows are golden brown. Let cool and serve!
Great all by itself as a dessert, yams remind me of the holiday season. Except that I can enjoy this dish year round :)
