Maple Syrup Baked Yams

One day after school this week I made another batch of the maple syrup baked yams that I recently learned about from my new cookbook, Thug Kitchen 101.

This time I had grapeseed oil but I didn’t have any maple syrup! So I subsituted a couple of tablespoons of honey in place of the maple syrup. It worked.

A quarter teaspoon of chilli powder and another of smoked paprika, a shake of sea salt and into the oven they went.

25 minutes later and the girls and I were eating sweet baked yams.

Easy. Cheap. Quick. Thug Life 101.
