Maple Roasted Yams with Pecans

5 from 1 reviews

A very simple recipe for roasted yams with maple and pecans that is easy to make and takes 5 minutes of hands on time before going into the oven to bake.




  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 F
  2. Slice yams into ¼ inch thin rounds.
  3. Toss with olive oil so all sides are coated.
  4. Lay them out on a parchment or foil lined sheet pan, mostly in one layer. A little overlap is fine, but do not crowd too much.
  5. Sprinkle with generous pinch salt and cracked pepper.
  6. Roast 20 minutes in the oven. Scatter with pecans and drizzle with a little maple. Gently mix and then return to the oven for 10 more minutes, or until edges begin to caramelize and yams are tender. Place on a platter or baking dish, cover loosely with foil and keep warm until serving.
