White Yam With Green In Tomatoes Egg Sauce. Method 1

 yam with green vegetables tomatoes and eggs
Boiled yam served with green vegetables in tomatoes sauce is a delicacy for my family. This is like one of Hubby's favorite dish. Many times, healthy meals are not really
fun to eat, we just try to tolerate because we want to live and eat healthy. Not in this case. This is one healthy meal that is fun eating. The fun heightens when you see some drops of clean sweat on your forehead and remember that you are eating healthy. This is one healthy meal that even kids love.
  1. Adding salt early can harden the food and make it take longer to cook.  Allow your yam, beans, plantain or whatever to boil before adding salt
  2. Do not break eggs directly into your pot because you don't want to eat egg shells, neither do you want a bad egg in your pot.
I preserve my fresh red pepper by making them into pepper sauce and storing in the fridge. For how to make pepper sauce, GO HERE

To buy white yams, insist that you scratch off a little part of the skin, if it doesn't change color after some seconds, then it is white yam. To see more Tips on Shopping for yams, Go HERE
Seasoning cubes are made with a lot of salt this day. I was fortunate to check for salt after adding the royco seasoning cubes. Thankfully, there was no need for salt.
Please, do not let vegetables sellers cut off all the stalk of your green amaranth, check for softness by breaking one stalk, if it breaks easily then it is still fresh and young. The fiber and crunchiness of tender stalks is what I really enjoy when chewing the vegetables. After serving everything, I remembered some people outside who didn't get food, so, I had to make another fast one and serve with the remaining yam. Later, I will post that METHOD 2.


  1. This is an innovative way of having your veggies present in meals! I like it.

  2. OMG, I love this, well any yam meal will get me, but with eggs and veggies tomato stew! Wow Eya, pity me small :)

    I'm camping at your house next time I'm in Abuja, LOL..

    1. You are soooo welcome Myne. I love white yam too.

    Eya,this is nice but what is d point of adding water to the eggs?...Bomsy

  20. Anonymous2/09/2013

    Hi Eya, haven't tried it wiv green usually use d ugwu leaves nd its equally nyce. Wld def try it wiv green veggies. Well done

  21. Hi Bomsy, the little water has a way of loosening up the eggs, so that they come out in tiny particles like little egusi lumpsin egusi soup.
    I guess I didn't add enough water because the eggs still came out in big pieces. Lol!

  22. Thanks everyone!
