So the other day I was shopping at Whole Foods looking for sweet potatoes. I didn't find them but I did see some Japanese Yams. They looked just like regular Yams to me so I bought them. Little did I know that when you peel them, the inside is white!
This frightened me at first because I have never cooked these before and I worried that my little one would not like them. I steamed them anyway and did a quick google search on the Japanese Yam.
When they were all done I tasted the yam and to my surprise it was sweeter than a the sweet potato I was used to. I mixed the rice and yams together in the food processor and added more coconut milk to make a nice thick puree for my baby. She loves it, and I like it too.
