Yam is a staple food in Nigeria and can be eaten anytime of the day. I grew up to eat yam in different forms. Fried, cooked or boiled, roasted or even grilled. Yam serves both as breakfast and dinner in most homes in Nigeria and West Africa and can be eaten with different kinds of sauce.
For dinner today, I ate my white cooked/boiled yam with vegetable sauce as you can see from the above photo. The vegetable is just the different ingredients in a normal tomato sauce. I have used spinach here instead of the Ugu leaves or what is known as pumpkin leaves, which is a common vegetable in Nigeria.
So spinach replaces Ugu leaves for me and it tastes just as good. I enjoy cooked yams mostly with vegetable sauce especially for it nutritional values. Vegetables are synonymous with health and I prefer it amongst the many other sauces that can be served with yams or plantains.
Do you know about yams? Have you eaten it before? Do you have any special way of eating yours and which sauce do you prefer it with?
Enjoy the view and have a virtual taste of this delicious meal. 🙂
Peace and Love!
