Warm Balsamic Yam & Blood Orange Salad with Fresh Thyme

yambloodorgangeshallotsalad

Warm salads are better than you think. You can even compliment them with a cold soup like cucumber or kale-coconut, and baffle the brains of your guests with this temperature switch-a-roo! dang. Yams are high in Vitamin C, dietary fiber, Vitamin B6, potassium, and manganese; while being low in saturated fat and sodium.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED (serves 2):

  • 1 Large organic Yam, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 large organic shallot, chopped
  • 2 organic blood oranges
  • 4 stems of fresh thyme
  • 4 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbs olive oil

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Steam the yam slices for about 15 – 20 min, or until soft
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, caramelize the shallots and oranges in the balsamic vinegar and olive oil
  3. Layer on a plate, top with the thyme, and serve warm!
