4 very small yams ( or 3-4 ounces per person) – Sliced
fresh cracked pepper
real maple syrup
pecans, a handful
Pre-heat oven to 425 F
Slice yams into ¼ inch thin rounds.
Toss with olive oil so all sides are coated.
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.
Sprinkle with generous pinch salt and cracked pepper.
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.
