Preparation 00:15 2017-08-23T00:15:00+00:00 Cook Time 00:35 2017-08-23T00:35:00+00:00 Serves 1 to 2     adjust servings


Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked, cooled and mashed Japanese yam
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch or arrowroot starch
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 4 to 6 slices prosciutto
  • 1 tablespoon duck fat, bacon fat or lard, divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, combine mashed sweet potato (ensure no lumps) with sea salt in a bowl.
  3. Mix in ¼ cup of the tapioca or arrowroot starch at a time. The mixture should form a thickened ball of dough.
  4. Transfer dough onto the baking sheet. Use your hands to roll out dough into a rectangle about ¼ inch thick. You can use parchment paper to assist you with this.
  5. Sprinkle rosemary evenly on the top surface of the dough. Layer prosciutto slices on top of dough.
  6. Roll the dough into a log shape, starting with one of the short sides and using the parchment paper to assist you.
  7. Brush dough with ½ tablespoon duck fat. Bake for about 30 minute until lightly golden brown. Brush with remaining 1/2 tablespoon fat.
  8. Turn oven broiler on high. Place baking sheet 6 inches away from the broiler. Broil stromboli for 2-3 minutes until medium golden brown. Watch carefully so you don’t burn the top! Let cool for a few minutes. Slice in half and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Best results will be achieved when using Japanese yam which is a purple skinned, white fleshed starchy sweet potato. You may try using Hannah variety white sweet potato which are slightly less starchy. Some people have used orange sweet potatoes but I don't recommend them because they are sweet in flavor and not as starchy.
