These Yam Sweet Potato Beef Sliders are made using yams, ginger, turmeric, black pepper and mixed with grass fed mince. Yam is a nutrient rich root whose benefits include being a digestion aid, having anti oxidant properties and helping the body absorb nutrients. Some studies state that yam improves the brain’s learning and memory capacity. You can have yams simply boiled with stews or you can grate it and mix it with mince and seasonings to make burgers or sausages. These sliders have been served on sliced boiled sweet potato, topped with kale then the sliders.
Yams have a wet texture and no distinct flavor so will take on the flavor of whatever you add to them. To use them in this recipe you’ll need to peel off the skin and then grate them.
