A Perfect start for the New Year
They’re really sweet potatoes in disguise, but don’t let this one fool you. It’s so delicious. It’s makes plenty for sharing!
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup fresh yam (shredded)
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 cups canned yams
- 3 1/2 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons pecans (optional) 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
Using a large non-stick pot, add butter, melt. Add onion and fresh yams. Sauté until golden brown. Add yams, milk, flour, pecans and cinnamon to a blender. Puree’. Add to pot. Cook until hot. Stir often.
The fresh yams add texture. Should your palate prefer a smoother taste, puree the onions and yams as well. Be certain to cool before adding to blender. Then re-heat and eat.
