Garlic Oregano Yam Oven Fries

A good addition to a salad, these fries are almost a meal in themselves. This recipe is one of the healthiest ways to prepare yams. Or dip them in homemade Ketchup (see ???? for recipe).

2 medium yams
2 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp. oregano
1 1/2 Tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 Tbsp. basil
Sea salt to taste

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Cut yams into wedges or chunks. In bowl, combine the garlic, pumpkin seeds, oregano, coconut oil, basil, and sea salt. Add the yams, stirring with your hands to make sure all the pieces are covered with the mixture. Spread yams on a baking tray lightly oiled with coconut oil; bake for about 35 minutes, If you prefer them crispier, leave in oven for an extra 5-10 minutes.

Makes 2 servings
