This yam recipe is perfect to pair with turkey, chicken, steak, or mild fish.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet or shallow baking dish with aluminum foil.

  2. Arrange yam slices in the prepared pan so they are overlapping slightly. Season with salt and pepper and then drizzle olive oil over them as evenly as possible.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until tender and yam slices have begun to wrinkle around the edges, about 30 minutes.
