Ingredients To Roast Yams

  • 5 - 6 inch long tuber
  • 2 tbs cooking oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Firstly, turn on the oven to preheat at 390C/250C.

Line the roasting pan with parchment or baking paper.

Peel off the outer skin from the tubers. Rinse them.

Slice into rounds about 1 inch wide.

Toss them into a bowl with oil and seasoning. Using tongs, toss them in the oil to thoroughly coat all surfaces of the yam slices.

Place the coated sweet potato on the lined baking tray, making sure there's lots of room between them.

Roast for 20 minutes till cooked but not browned.

They're ready when soft but still only just slightly firm in the center. Test with a little sharp knife.

Cool, then dice into small chunks.

That's it! The yams are ready and the quinoa should be ready about now too. The next easy stage is to create this sensational salad.
