Make Yam Pottage from Africa!
March 28, 2011

Things You’ll Need:

* Yams (get yam tubers from an African food store)
* Palm oil (from African food store too)
* Salt
* Red pepper powder
* 1 onion
* 2 tomatoes
* Maggi (2) cubes
* 1 red bell pepper
* Parsley spice

Grab your BFF and:

  1. Cut the yam tuber into chunky cubes and boil in salted water until almost soft about 20 minutes
  2. Add maggi cubes, blend the red bell, tomatoes and onions and pour into yam and water. Add sliced onions and powdered pepper, some parsley spice and stir.
  3. Let boil for the yam to soak in the soup for about 8 minutes, then add the palm oil. It gives it a lovely red/orange look. When the soup thickens, stir until some of the yam cubes break to turn into porridge, or thick, soup.
  4. Let simmer on low heat for about 5 mins and then it is ready to serve
