Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Ready To Serve: 80 Minutes

Serves 4


· 4 large yams

· 1/3 cup Vanilla soy milk (not light, you want a rich flavor)

· A heaping handful of crushed pecans

· 3 tablespoon maple syrup

· Dash of salt

· 1/2 tsp nutmeg

· 1/2 tsp of cinnamon

· Vegan butter


Cook yams for 60 minutes at 425 degrees or until tender (do a fork check and make sure the fork glides through the yams). Scoop out the yam insides and discard the skin. With a potato masher, smash the yams so they are semi smooth, leaving a few chunks. Add butter and room temperature soy milk and mix. Add maple syrup, nutmeg, salt and cinnamon. Top with crushed pecans.
