Grilled candied yams recipe

Published June 27, 2010 4:28PM (EDT)


  • 2 large yams
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 vegetable steamer


  1. Turn yam on its side and slice into 1-inch thick ovals (like yam hockey pucks).
  2. Place yams in a vegetable steamer and steam for approximately 15 minutes -- or until they are tender enough to pierce with a fork.
  3. Remove yams from steamer and brush with olive oil. Place on a medium hot section of the grill and cook for approximately 10 minutes per side -- or until each side browns as the natural sugars in the yam begin to caramelize (this is the desired effect that transforms the common yam into an orgasmic vegetable).
