Great Pic of Purple Yam Flan Photo!
The Yam Flan at Candela Taco Bar on La Brea in Los Angeles is sooooo amazing that I want to try making it. I want it to be a blend of Soul Food and Latin Style though. So I want to add the same spices that Sweet Potato Pie has. (Sorry for this bad pic. My Blackberry Curve takes sucky pics and isnt built with a flash).
I also want to give the bottom of the flan a bit of some kind of crust, maybe a mix of graham, whole wheat, and shortbread. Maybe only the crust should have the spices. Hmmm. I’ll have to experiment. I even thought about how one could try and torch the top like a creme brule. Wow. Then that leads to the question of…why not try making a sweet potato or yam creme brule…sinful! Oh yeah, I have been thinking about experimenting with Hawaiian purple sweet potatos for a pie. I could try it in the Flan too. Hmmm.
Just did this google search and this Yam Flan looks pretty good:
