2 sweet potatoes (peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sage leaves, torn in 1/2-inch pieces 
Olive oil
2 Teaspoons Sea salt 
2 Teaspoons Ground pepper
2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder

  1. Peel the squash, cut it in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Peel the yams and sweet potatoes. Cut the squash, yam, sweet potatoes into ½ inch cubes and place them onto the Universal Tray. Lightly drizzle olive oil onto vegetables and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  2. Slide the tray into the oven on the middle rack. Turn on the Combi-Steam oven, select “Operating Modes” and select “Surround.” Select “Set the duration” and set the temperature to 435 degrees, the duration for 40 minutes at 30% moisture. Select “Start now.”
  3. While the vegetables are in the oven melt the butter and sage on low heat for about 5-7 minutes. Once the butter is golden brown and the sage leaves turn to dark green, turn the cooktop off and set the pan aside. Once your vegetables are done pour the butter and sage leaves onto the vegetables. Transfer to a bowl, garnish with parsley leaves and serve.
