Sometimes I have the hardest time thinking of things to serve as appetizers that are simple and a little different. These worked out beautifully at my last dinner party when there were none left! A few little facts about yams: they are available year round, do not buy wrinkled ones or spouting ones, they should be stored in a cool dark place but not the refrigerator; and only keep for about two weeks because of their high sugar content.
2 Yams peeled and cut length wise into Â¾ inch wedges
Â¼ Cup of Olive oil
3 teaspoon of ground cumin (depending on your taste buds)
1 teaspoon of paprika (depends on how spicy you like it)
salt and pepper
In a boil toss olive oil, cumin, paprika, and salt and pepper. Broil for 5 minutes on each side. Serve with Ketchup.
