Yams aren't just for the holidays - my family enjoys this sweet yam recipe year-round! Best of all, the sweet and savory blends in this recipe come from the natural sugars in the yams and banana, so no extra sugar is required.

Recipe Ingredients for Year-round Yams

1/2 c yams
1/4 tbsp smart balance 67% buttery spread
1/4 medium banana

Recipe Directions for Year-round Yams

  1. Warm skillet or pan over medium to medium-low heat.

  2. Place small dollop of butter in pan and let melt.

  3. Skin and chop yams, place in skillet and cover with lid.

  4. Check yams periodically, turning them so all sides are softened.

  5. When yams are still firm, but able to break down with fork, peel and chop banana, add to yams. Add remaining butter.

  6. Keep at medium heat and continue checking until softened.

  7. Right in skillet, use potato masher and begin to work. Keep mashing until desired consistency is achieved - we prefer ours a bit chunky - so yummy!
