Yams - great tasting recipe - Low cost great nutrients!

Do you want to add more vegetables to your diet, to your families diet or have pounds of yams left over from a recent sale at the grocery store with no idea what to do with them?

Yams - great tasting recipe
Quick great tasting recipe for yams or sweet potatoes

2-3 yams
handful of raisins and/or a few chopped dates or figs
Pure maple syrup
1 cup water or apple cider

Cut up the yams into small pieces and put them into a pot.  Add the raisins and cinnamon and pour the water or apple cider over the ingredients.  Add a tablespoon of maple syrup and one of agave.  Cook slowly until the yams are tender.  Carefully pour the ingredients into a Blentec, Vitamix, food processor, or blender able to handle the contents.  Blend until very smooth and serve hot or cold depending on your families likes.  I enjoy this tasty treat cold or hot and as a great mid day energy boost.  

A variation to this recipe is blend 2/3 of the yams and pour over the other 1/3 and serve as part of the main meal.
