I recently discovered garnet yams and fell in love. I'd really like to include them in my Thanksgiving meal, but the only recipes I can find are for mashed sweet potatoes with tons of sugar or maple syrup. I'm looking for something a little more interesting than that. When I make them for myself I just roast them with a little olive oil and salt, but this seems so plain for Thanksgiving. Any ideas?

i think they would be beautiful roasted for a holiday meal! if you want to dress it up, do a mix with other roots, or you could add a fresh herb vinaigrette over the yams. A counterpoint, and a little color contrast for presentation.

i'm sure others will have much better ideas. Go for it!

Last year I made sweet potato gnocchi out of garnet yams and served them on a bed of tree oyster mushrooms and swiss chard. It was our main for Thanksgiving, but you could make a smallish batch and do them as a side. Probably be tasty even without the chard and shrooms.

I based my gnocchi on this recipe from Sunset. I subbed in Cashew Ricotta from Vcon for the ricotta and coarsely crushed pecans in for the parmesan. They were extremely well received by the all the diners. I've made the same recipe a couple of times now and it is always delish.

Also, for a really simple side, I like to just roast them in a little olive oil with half a diced onion and a little black pepper. They are SO tasty, they really don't need too much.
