Elegant Cook Notes

Sweet Potatoes and Yams

Posted on January 20, 2012 at 7:45 PM



Our friends at Paleo Works in Yorkshire have written a wonderful essay about a dietary marvel known as the sweet potato. Read it HERE, and while on their page, you can read about the sensible, successful Paleo Diet. Below, please find a recipe for a health-promoting salad that I devised using yams and beets.



A refreshing way to eat health-promoting vegetables, this elegant cabbage and yam salad is also a nice thing to serve your friends: red cabbage is sliced as thinly as possible, and marinated for several hours in the vinaigrette of your choice, then mixed with yams that have been cut into match-sticks and cooked in water with a bit of honey until slightly soft.
