The purple yam known as ube is a great ingredient that’s becoming more and more familiar to American diners. It takes to roasting just as well as any other naturally earthy-sweet root vegetable, and is extra-pretty on the plate. Seasoned with tahini, lime juice, and coconut oil, it’s a simple, healthy, and delicious side to almost anything, but can stand on its own as well. Skip the bee pollen and it’s vegan too.
Note: The recipe makes one or two servings, but you can easily increase the amounts to make as many as you need.
