yam wontons

i know this is more cooking than baking, but i just loved these so much and was so proud of myself that i took pictures and want to share.

i saw a recipe for this very thing in a cooking light in a doctor's office and felt too bad to rip it out but figured i could find it online. no such luck. i found a bunch of different recipes but none that matched what i saw in cooking light. so basically i just made this up based on a few different ideas from those different recipes.

ok, so i took two medium sized yams and peeled them and cut them into french fry sized pieces. i cooked them in coconut oil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes (i do this a lot when i just eat yams plain, but not to the point where i can mash them easily, like i needed for this recipe) once i could mash them, i added a bit of goat cheese and made sure there was enough flavoring from before. i put them in wonton wrappers, sealed 'em up and browned them on both sides in a little bit of olive oil (just enough so the pan isn't dry). and that's it. super easy to make, just a little time consuming with stuffing the wonton wrappers. but they are super good and pretty healthy with the minimal amount of oil i used and basic seasoning.

i'm really going to have to try these out. when i went home my mom came up w/a new thing for spinach ravioli - boil, drain, and then lightly toast on each side in a non stick pan w/a little blood orange oil and melt a little parmesean on top. eat as is. delish!!
