Tasty Sweet Tots
Tater tots are beloved by kids...and many grown-ups, let's be honest. This version combines yams with beans and uses baking to produce a more nutritious variation that's more flavorful than the regular potato version.Tip: Yams and sweet potatoes are not quite the same, but if you can't find yams, sweet potatoes are a suitable substitute.
1 1/2 lbs. yams
3/4 cups low-sodium canned garbanzo beans, not drained
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
