Baked Sweet Potatoes & Yams

These nutritionally packed vegetables are delicious with a little butter. For a complete meal, pair with a salad, steamed vegetables or pulled pork.

  • Serves: 8


  • 4 Sweet Potatoes Small – Medium sized
  • 4 Red Yams Small – Medium sized
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.

  2. Wash potatoes/yams thoroughly under running water. Rub skin with olive oil and place on a sheet pan.

  3. Bake for 1 hour or until tender. Check by inserting a small knife into the tuber. If it goes in and out easily, it is done.
