Prep time: 15 min   Total Time: 15 min   Yield: 1 yam rose

Ingredients:

1 yam potato, peeled

You will need:
Butter Flavored Cooking Spray
muffin tin or custard cup, greased
2 plain flat wooden toothpicks


Instructions

Slice 10 to 15 yam slices crosswise 1/8-inch thick. Put slices into boiling salted water, lower temperature and simmer gently for 5 minutes.  Immediately plunge into an ice water bath to stop the cooking action; drain and pat slices dry.

On a flat surface overlap them slightly in a long continuous row. Carefully roll them up, they are very fragile and break easily.

Secure the roll with plain toothpicks at the base in an "X" shape. Cut a thin slice off bottom end of roll to sit level. Spray or brush with melted butter; adjust yam slices to resemble a rose. Fit into a muffin tin or custard cup, you may have to shorten toothpicks to fit them in the cup. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

Remove toothpicks, serve on dinner plate with a meat entree.

Wine recommendation: Sauvignon Blanc; Pinot Noir
