Updated: Dec 8, 2021
6 Yams or sweets
¾ cup water
1 tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp kudzu or starch plus
2 Tbsp water or apple juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Peel and slice potatoes into 1-inch chunks
Mix the first six ingredients in a baking dish, so the mixture fits together next to each other in one layer.
Bake until tender, gently mixing a little during baking. Time: approximately 45 minutes.
Mix kudzu with water to make a liquid starch.
Add the kudzu mixture after 30 minutes of baking, gently folding it into the dish. Bake until tender.
You can lightly broil this dish right before serving. Also, any root vegetable can be added or substituted with yams.
