Slow Roasted Vegetables

Yesterday when we picked up our co op basket, I saw that there were 6 yams and two onions.  I thought that they may work well in the crock pot.  So I gave it a try and they turned out to be a delicious little side dish!

Not to mention it was super simple.  I love the idea of throwing everything in a pot and walking away.  So convenient. This dish is sort of an extension of my Seasonal Roasted Vegetables.
