Yams with Lemon


Yams with Lemon help you get all the nutritional benefits from vegetables in this tasty and healthful dish.

People frequently confuse yams with sweet potatoes. They are actually different root vegetables. In this country the word yam is used to refer to the sweet potato, and not to any of the distinctively sharp-tasting root vegetables that people from the Caribbean or Africa know.


3 cups peeled and cubed yams
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon freshly chopped Italian parsley
Freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Place the yams in a covered baking dish with just enough water to coat the bottom of the pan.

After they have baked for 45 to 50 minutes, until tender, add the lemon juice and parsley.

Add salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
