Although the terms yam and sweet potato are often used interchangeably, they belong to different plant species. A true yam is a tropical-vine tuber found in South and Central America, the West Indies and parts of Asia and Africa. The sweet potato, a large, edible root that is a member of the morning glory family, is native to tropical areas of the Americas. Either may be used in this dish. If desired, garnish the roasted yams with finely slivered parsley.
