A pot of yam cooked with green vegetables

HOW TO COOK YAM AND SPINACH.
My dad taught me how to prepare this meal when I was little and although I hated it then (I hated anything vegetable then…). Now it’s one of my favorite foods. Here is the step by step method
of how to cook this food.

INGREDIENTS:

Yam, Spinach (green or aleho), Onions, Pepper,  Salt,  Royco. You can decide to add smoked fish as well.
  1. Peel and cut your yam into small sizes.

  1. Wash the yam and put in the pot to boil. Add a little salt.

  1. While the yam is boiling, cut  and wash your spinach or green amaranth.


  1. Next you cut your onions, pound your pepper and seasoning.


  1. When your yam is almost done, add your spinach to the yam and allow to cook for a few minutes.


  1. After cooking for some minutes….

  1. Remove the yam from the fire and sieve the water

  1. Put a dry pot on the fire, add palm oil and onion. Fry the onion for 2 minutes, then add pepper, salt and royco.


  1. Fry for 1 minute, den reduce the heat and add your cooked yam and green. Mix very well.

  1. Datzall!!!

Serve with cold water.

Enjoy…..

  7. The food looks delicious. I make mine a similar way but I cook the yam with the minimum quantity of water possible so that by the time it's cooked all the water is absorbed and I don't have to drain any excess.
    Vegetables contain a lot of water so when I add the veg I turn the heat down and the steam produced by the water in the veg cooks it in seconds.
    This way all the nutrients are preserved.
    This way you don't

  12. Wow, thanks for this reminder of home. But we add ewedu leaves to the green. We steam the veggies with pepper and onions, then pound a bit in mortar before adding to the already cooked yam with oil, crayfish, salt and fish. So yum yum.
