Tis the roasting season and I’m loving it. Roasting veggies is so much fun.
During winter the body needs warmth along with nourishment. Vegetables that grows slowly with edible part growing beneath the ground are considered warming and good during winter season. Nuts, seeds, beans and other veggies are beneficial too.
Root vegetables like potatoes, yams, beets, carrots,sweet potatoes etc. when baked with drizzle of oil and pinch of salt brings out the best from those starches.
Today I am sharing recipe of Oven Roasted Yams. Just 4 simple ingredients, 3 easy steps and its ready!
