I am at home on my own for lunch most days now! Wow! I never thought my kids would really all grow up and go to school, I even begged my little twins to stay home with me instead of going to school. I lost that one, they are so excited and loving every minute of being big!
For me, lunch is usually a salad of simple sorts, a handful of spinach topped with any fruit or veggie I can quickly chop. I am pretty simple most days. Lately I have a new favorite food and adding it to my salad has been such a delightful treat!
Dry Roasted Garlic and Curry Yams!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
1 yam, chopped and quartered (see pic for size)
Curry powder to taste
Garlic powder to taste
Salt and pepper if desired
For this recipe I do not use any oil, but parchment paper is a must to prevent the yam from sticking.
Place parchment paper on baking sheet, spread even layer of chopped yam and sprinkle with desired amount of seasonings. Bake for 20 minutes or until yams are soft, the thicker they are the longer it takes. When you pull them from the oven they should be a little crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. I love to eat these on the side of any meal or on top of my handful of spinach!
Super simple, but it makes lunch time a little more fun!
