Barbecued Jamaican Yams -

I discovered this out of the ordinary vegetable when walking though an Asian market with my sister in Toronto. We stumbled across this veggie and both said –“Hey, why not?” Here is a really simple way to prepare it on the barbecue. It comes out tasting like a cross between a chestnut and a potato.

  • 1 Jamaican Yam
  • 2 Tbsp. Vegetable oil
  • 1 Tsp. salt


  1. Slice the yam into about 1 inch thick pieces, leaving the skin intact.
  2. Toss with the oil and salt.
  3. Turn on the barbecue to a medium high flame. Place the yam slices directly on the grill. Allow to cook for about 3 minutes per side.
