-1 tbsp cinnamon

Instructions:

bowlPre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Cut the ends off each yam, slice in half, and place in a colander. Once you’re done cutting all of your yams, rinse them thoroughly with water. Shake dry in the colander, and transfer over to a mixing bowl. Distribute half of cinnamon, salt and pepper over top, mix thoroughly into yams and pull the yams from the bottom of the bowl up to the top. Distribute remaining seasonings and again thoroughly combine.

 

Place on baking tray lined with tin foil and lightly sprayed with low cal no stick spray. Bake for 30-40 mins or until you can poke a fork right through the yams.
