Whipped Yams

Serves 6

2 medium sized yam, chopped (skin on)

2-3 tablespoon coconut oil

Sea salt to taste 

Scrub and wash yams; chop into medium size pieces. Place yams in a pot and cover with water. Bring to boil on high heat, once boiling reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes until soft not mushy. Remove yams from water; add coconut oil and salt and mash yams with a fork or potato masher. For a smoother texture, peel yams before you boil.

Root Vegetable Medley

Serves 6

1 medium sweet potato, chopped

1 medium potato, chopped

1 medium beet, chopped

2 large carrots, chopped

½ onion, chopped

2 parsnips, chopped

2 Tbsp. olive oil

½ tsp garlic powder

1 Tsp rosemary

Salt and pepper

Heat oven to 400 degree F. No need to peel the skins off the root vegetables, just scrub clean.

Season with herbs and spices for flavor. Cook vegetables in oven for 40-50 minutes until soft.
