How To Cook Yam Like Porridge, Mix With Green Vegetables


my Green veggies yam porridge
 The time it takes to cook this green vegetables yam
depends on how soft or hard you want your yam cooked. This is a very easy dish to cook. While yam is cooking, the amaranth is washed, chopped and sauteed in palm oil with onion, salt and seasoning.

Even little children and
babies love this meal, it is so easy to eat. The soft yam can be mashed with fingers and given to babies being introduced to solid foods.
add ground crayfish, salt, seasoning to boiling slices of yam
add washed smoked fish to pot of yam
add ground pepper,cook yam till very soft
yam cooks until sauce dries up
add palm oil stir fried green vegetables
stir green vegetables with cooked yam
allow green vegetables and yam to simmer for 3 minutes or more

    1. Sorry about the sand. I scrub smoked fish very well with sand before washing with warm water. Use much sharp salt when you scrub.

    1. Yes Sandra, the vegetable was washed and stir fried (sauteed) briefly in a little palm oil, with salt and seasoning cube before adding to yam.

  11. i luv god food but i don't really like to cook. This is mainly because I lack the ideas of what to make, I have tried out two of your recipes and my husband who claimed not to like banga soup demanded why I have not given him the "new soup" (banga with afang leaves) I made. It came out really nice, thanks for making cooking more attractive for me.
