Pretty much followed the recipe, but I didn't peel the yam, since I enjoy the taste of the peel! The recipe was easy & came together in no time at all, for A VERY TASTY SIDE! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my Vegan partners in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 4]

This was a great way to finally use the acorn squash I've been hanging onto for awhile now! Yummy was to prepare winter squashes and yams or sweet pots. EASY too! thank you.
