Recipe: Chas’s Microwaved Yam Surprise

Made this on the fly this morning from some farmers’ market items and stuff I had around, and it worked! Micromanaged instructions are aimed at me; please don’t be insulted and feel free to adjust to your needs.

Per serving:

  • 1 smallish yam (I suspect it’s actually a sweet potato but the farmer calls it a yam)
  • 2 small apples (could use one large one)
  • 1/8 cup unsalted roasted mixed nuts
  • 1/8 cap unsalted roasted sunflower seeds
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  1. Wash the yam and apples.
  2. Use a fork to poke holes all over the yam (no I don’t peel it, because fiber).
  3. Nuke the yam at 50% for 5 min for one serving (your microwave may vary). For multiple servings, increase the cooking time slightly.
  4. While it’s nuking, dice the apples.
  5. Then nuke the apple(s) at 50% for 2 min for one serving. Again, for multiple servings, increase the cooking time slightly.
  6. While the apples are nuking, slice the yam into biteable pieces. Watch out, it’s hot!
  7. Sprinkle the nuts and seeds over the apples.
  8. Sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg over it all.
  9. Drizzle the EVOO over it all.
  10. Dig in!

Oh, and about the name. It just sounded better than Microwaved Yam and Apples with Nuts and Seeds.
