A Perfect Thanksgiving Side Dish – {Rosemary Spinach Yam Stackers}

A Perfect Thanksgiving Side Dish – {Rosemary Spinach Yam Stackers}

Ingredients

  • 2-3 yams (I used regular yams as well as purple yams!), scrubbed and sliced about 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 cup spinach
  • salt/pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Lightly spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Melt the butter and coconut oil in a small sauce pan. In a large bowl, combine the parmesan, chopped rosemary, salt and pepper. Whisk in the butter and coconut oil. Lightly coat each yam slice all over within the large bowl.
  3. Layer the slices in the muffin tin, alternating with a spinach leaf or two between each slice, smaller slices closer to the bottom of the tin so that the larger slices fit in the wide opening at the top. These will shrink in the oven. (And your kids will have no idea the spinach is in there.)
  4. Bake for 50 minutes or so, until the yams are golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin. Top with extra rosemary and parmesan cheese.

Stuffing More Vegetables…. [Harvest Stuffed Carnival Squash]

Harvest Stuffed Carnival Squash 1

True Story. I love to stuff things.  Have you noticed that trend on all my blog posts?  I love the appearance of a meal when it’s stuffed in something, rather than just food on a plate.  That’s partly why I’m not a fan of Mexican food – the presentation is just a mess on a […]

Skinny Chick Skillet Nachos 3

So clearly, football season is in full effect.  I am not a football fan, but most of my friends enjoy it.  On Sundays, it’s kind of a lonely time for me, given everyone is off somewhere watching the games all day.  While I can’t much contribute to the friendly (sometimes friendly?) banter amongst opposing fans, […]
