If you follow this blog with any regularity, you know I’ve been involved with a project over at Elvis International Magazine. They asked me to make a couple of recipes that were the King’s favorites and photograph them for the magazine.
Aside from being tickled pink at the very idea of being “involved with Elvis” ~blushing~, I was ecstatic at the idea of converting some Elvis favorites into clean eating meals. This one, was a breeze!
Clean Eating Apples And Yams
(Makes 8 servings)
- 2 very large yams, sliced about 1/4 inch thick
- 2 apples, sliced about 1/4 inch thick
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 2 teaspoon corn starch
- 1/2 cup prepared orange juice, no added sugar
- 2 tablespoons walnuts – chopped
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Boil your yams with the skins on for about 40 minutes. Remove from water and allow to cool.
- Peel your yams and your apples. Remove the core as well. If you have an apple peeler, all the better as it will do both jobs at once!
- Slice your yams and apples about 1/4 inch thick.
- Spray a casserole dish with a light coat of olive oil. Then, layer your apples and yams in rows.
- In a sauce pot, combine your remaining ingredients (except the walnuts) using a whisk. Be sure to dissolve your corn starch so you don’t have any clumps. Heat as you whisk until the sauce is nice and thick.
- Pour sauce over yams and apples and top with walnuts.
- Bake for about 20 minutes.
