I eat yam with egg source, meat/fish/chicken stew. I also enjoy eating yam with red oil(adding onions, pepper,and salt in it). Then, porridge yam with lots of vegetables and shrimps.

yam with sugar and salt is great. You add the sugar to the water before cooking, along with the salt. Makes for a nice dish. You have to use a lot of sugar though, to get the taste.



I also like slicing yams very thin, instead of thick and chunky. The thinner slices are easier to dice and eat.

But thicker slices are great for soaking in palm oil with a sprinkle of salt. cheesy

as for what goes with yam- just about anything. Eggs, garden eggs, fish sauce, pepper and onion sauce,palm or veggie oil, you name it.

@mafolayomi.recipe for yam and garden egg.



                                           THE FIRST PART

(1)Yam,salt or sugar,water.Put water on the fire and add enough sugar,peel the yam(preferable  cut into smaller bits)wash and add to the boiling water,the water should not be much so that the water drys up when the yam,so people sieve the water out but is better for the water to dry with the yam.
                       
                                          THE SECOND PART

(2)Garden eggs,vegetable oil,salt,tomatoes,pepper(if the unripe ones are available,good)crayfish,fish,fresh shrimps,knorr,onions.
put water on the fire,add garden eggs,put tomates,pepper,crayfish in a clean rubber bag,add to the garden egg on the fire,allow to cook.Peel the fresh shrimps,clean the fish.when the garden egg is cooked remove and put in cool water and peel of the skin along with the tomatoes,put the peeled garden egg,pepper,peeled tomatoes and crayfish in a bowl and mash.Put oil on the fire,add dice onoins,mashed crayfish,mashed tomatoes,mashed pepper,fish ,shrimps,salt and knorr and allow to cook,then add mashed garden egg and stir,and allow to cook for like 5mins then is ready to be serve with the yam.This is way i like it,others prepare theirs differently.

nice.

Also, the Nigerian variety of garden egg tastes better than the long purple American one. At least when eating it with yam. The taste is stronger and better.

Saltfish goes well with many things. I like Saltfish with white rice and fried yam. Nothing hits the spot like that.
