**Oh, by the way, this picture doesn't do it justice. I promise, I will repost a more appropriate picture when I make them again. This was a trial run with the new Shmallows. Definitely pack the top with those! I know, mine looks pathetic. But it's better than no picture , right?**
Here ... Oh SNAP - my pumpkin pie is in the oven! .... Whew! It's all good...everything is ok.
Back to what I was saying...
Here is the deliciously, simple Yam recipe!
6 large * organic yams (washed and cut in half)
1/4 -1/2 cup * Earth Balance Non-Dairy, etc. butter
1/2 can refrigerated, canned * Coconut Milk/ Cream
1/3 cup * Almond/Toasted Coconut milk (Not canned)
1/4- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
* Note: The reason why I don't have exact measurements for some of the ingredients is because it is to your liking.
So, let's get cooking!
1. Steam the yams in a large pot. Check after about 15 min. They should be tender enough for a fork to easily go through. Take the pot off the heat and let cool slightly.
2. As you are waiting for the yams to cool, prepare your other ingredients, ready to pour into your mixing bowl, where you will be whipping up some goodness!
3. On a cutting board, place the yams and make fine slits through the peel/skin on opposing sides of the yam. The skin will easily peel off.
4. Throw the peeled yams into your mixing bowl and mash them slightly with a masher.
5. Whip it! Whip it real good!! ... Sorry, I couldn't resist. As you begin whipping/ beating it on medium speed, pour in all of your ingredients!
6. Spoon your whipped yams into a casserole dish and top with your homemade Shmallows! As many as you want!! Again, the more the better/prettier!
7. Bake at 350 F for 10- 15 minutes, or until the Shmallows are melted and irresistible looking!!
This is a hit at the table! I don't know why I only make it for Thanksgiving!? That's gonna change! The maple syrup from the Shmallows melts perfectly to seep into the top layer of the yams... mouthwatering!
Have a wonderful time gathering at the dinner table with your loved ones, sharing what you are thankful for and, please, laugh a whole lot!!
I'd love to hear how your yummy dishes turned out!
