Vegan Holiday Recipe #6: Baked Apples and Yams


I never met my grandparents, but I was told that my paternal grandmother would bake yams with marshmallows for Thanksgiving. So one year I asked my sister to help put one together, which yielded this lovely treat.

Baked Apples and Yams

Water for boiling
6 to 8 yams
5 to 6 apples, peeled and sliced into 1/8” – 1/4” slices
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/4 cup margarine
1 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350F
Boil yams until barely tender.
While yams are boiling, grease casserole dish with a thin layer of margarine.
When yams are barely tender, remove from pan and let cool.
Once yams are cooled, peel and slice into 1/8” – 1/4” slices.
Place yams and peeled apple slices in a casserole dish.
In a saucepan, combine glazing ingredients.
Stir over low to medium heat until it begins to thicken.
Pour over yams and apples.
Cover casserole dish with foil and bake at 350F for 1 hr.
