I love thyme and it adds a unique flavour to the yams. I boiled up some yams and mashed them. In a skillet I cooked some onions and dried thyme. When the onions were soft I turned down the heat and added some coconut milk and let it simmer for 10 - 20 minutes. Added it to the yams and YUMMY. Next time I will try it with a bunch of mixed root vegetables.
