This Jewel Yam & Cranberry Bake is one of my favorite fall-inspired side dishes. The tart cranberries pair perfectly with the sweetness of the yams and the cinnamon & ginger bring warmth to the dish. This sweet meets savory side-dish is always a crowd pleaser at our family gatherings.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 large jewel yams, peeled sliced into wedges (see photo)
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Combine all ingredients in a 9×13 glass baking dish. Make sure the yams & cranberries are coated evenly with the spices and coconut oil.
Place in the oven to roast for 45-50 minutes or until yams are fork tender and browned on the edges (make sure that the cranberries don’t burn).
This recipe is fabulous for Thanksgiving but it also goes great with a batch of turkey meatballs or roasted chicken to mix up your weeknight dinners a bit.
