Saturday night I sent my husband to pick up a few items I needed for our Sunday dinner yesterday. On the list were sweet potatoes. We grilled black bean burgers and these Parmesan-Garlic Sweet Potato Rounds were going to be the perfect side. (They’ve been making quite the appearance around here lately. I’m slightly obsessed with them.
As I started to peel the sweet potatoes yesterday, I thought to myself, “These look kind of funny.” They weren’t orange like a sweet potato but more white in color, like a regular potato. My husband insisted they were under the sign “Sweet Potatoes” at the store, so I just continued.
Turns out they were yams (my sister-in-law said so). Turns out, I didn’t know the difference between a yam and a sweet potato. Turns out, I got a little lesson on the difference. And as it turns out, Parmesan-Garlic Yam Rounds are pretty tasty too! Just a little starchier.
But definitely go with the sweet potatoes. And make these beloved rounds (as I like to call them) asap. They are super easy and I think, fun to make.
