Stuffed Yam

4 Yams

We're always trying to eat healthy around our house, but that's not always easy - especially when you have a house full of people with different tastes.

Vegans, vegetarians, meat lovers and one person who hates to cook, but is responsible to make meals for all of them. My solution is to focus on recipes that can easily be customized for different my yams.

My easy single serve lasagna rolls are another great example.

The yams please everyone, since they can be stuffed individually, and are ready in about 10 minutes. They make a great meal or a hearty side dish.

The recipe below is just a suggestion, since this is what I call a "garbage pail" recipe...add whatever you have on hand.

I do this with my quiches, too.
