Yam Hash

Yummy Yam Hash | recipe from runawayrice.comYams and sweet potatoes are loaded with Vitamin B6 & C and other health benefits and so I try to incorporate them in my cooking whenever possible.  I had some leftover yams and combined it with my go-to stir fry recipe to make this delicious dish.  Simple and quick to make, this is a wonderful side dish to any meal.


1/2 lb yams or sweet potatoes
1/2 small red onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


Fill a bowl with water.  Add 1 teaspoon of salt and stir to dissolve.  Peel yams and slice into small 1/2-inch thick chunks.  Add yams into water bowl and soak for 5 minutes.  (This prevents the yams from turning brown as they oxidize very quickly.)  Drain.  Layer yams on a large plate and microwave on High for 4 minutes.  Yams should be about half-way cooked at this point.  Peel and dice the onions.

Heat a wok over medium-high heat.  Add oil, onions and garlic.  Stir fry for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.  Add yams and stir fry for 3 minutes.  Add oyster sauce, soy sauce and black pepper.  Stir fry for another  2-3 minutes.

Serve hot.

Yields:  2-3 servings
