I bought these yams with the intention of eating them with butter and brown sugar, but when I saw this Epicurious recipe, I saw a golden opportunity to make it through an entire package of fresh thyme (not a small miracle for me). As I adore sweet potato fries, it's no wonder that I also enjoyed this savory (and pretty garlicky) preparation of yams.
Obviously, I substituted yams for sweet potatoes and I only used 2 yams, which were sliced about an inch thick, so they'd cook up faster. My total cooking time was 25 - 30 min. (I checked obsessively because I was fearful of having burnt-to-black-bits garlic). These yams fit the bill of simple, but flavorful food I want to start taking to work, so I'm betting they're going to be in heavy rotation!
