Roasted Maple Pecan Yams
4 1/2 to 5 cups (about 2 lbs.) of yams, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 cup of pecans
1 tsp. of kosher salt
1 tbsp. of olive oil
1/2 cup of maple syrup
2 tbsp. of balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
1. In a medium bowl, toss the yams, pecans, oil, and kosher salt together. Spread the yams and pecans out evenly on a baking sheet. Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes.
2. Turn the yams and pecans over and place them back in the oven and bake for another 15 minutes. While the yams are baking in the oven, pour the maple syrup and balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Continue to boil the syrup until it reduces by half and thickens, stirring occasionally.
3. Remove the pan of yams from the oven and drizzle the maple syrup glaze over the yams. Gently toss to evenly coat. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
