● 4 fresh yams, peeled and diced small
● 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced small
● 1 ½ tsp kosher salt
● ½ tsp course ground black pepper
● 2 Tbsp olive
● 2 granny smith apples, cored and diced small
In a large skillet, sautee the onions in oil over medium-high heat. When the onions are translucent and sweet smelling, toss in the sweet potatoes, and reduce the heat to medium. Continue cooking until the sweet potatoes are soft to your liking. Remove from the heat and toss in the diced apples. Transfer to a serving dish and serve hot.
Tips: Alternatively, you can cook the apples with the yams and onions. Once the apples and yams are soft, mash the whole affair until it is your desired level of creaminess, then spread it into a casserole dish and top with chopped candied pecans.
