Orange Goat Cheese Whipped Yams

Image
Ingredients
  • 3 large yams or sweet potatoes (~800 grams after roasting and peeling)
  • juice of 2 oranges
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons goat cheese (optional)
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons grass fed butter (or bacon fat, lard, coconut oil, etc.)
  • 10-12 fresh sage leaves, stems removed
 
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Poke holes in yams with a fork. Wrap in foil. Bake for 45-60 minutes until soft.
  3. While the yams are roasting, place a small pan over medium heat. Add the butter. Once melted, add sage leaves and cook until they are crispy, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove them with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel to drain. Then crumble the sage leaves.
  4. Peel the cooked yams and place in a deep bowl. Using a hand mixer, whip until smooth. Add juice from the oranges, maple syrup, goat cheese, salt and crumbled sage leaves. Whip together until smooth.
  5. Serve immediately.
