Recipe Ingredient


  • 1kg white puna yam
  • Leafy Vegetable: Spinach/Fluted pumpkin/Green Amaranth/Water Leaves
  • Red palm Oil: to colour
  • 4 okra fingers (optional)
  • Ukpaka or Ugba: a handful (optional)
  • 2 medium onions
  • Chilli Pepper & Salt (to taste)
  • 2 stock cubes


Before you cook Yam & Vegetable

  1. Peel and cut the yam tuber into 2 inch cubes. Wash the yam cubes and place in a sizeable pot.
  2. Wash and cut the leafy vegetables, I used frozen spinach. Just leave to defrost a little bit and cut into small pieces. Then when fully defrosted, wring out the excess water.
  3. Rinse the ukpaka and cut the onions and okra into tiny pieces. Grind or blend the chilli pepper. Put all these in a separate pot and set aside. The okra only helps the vegetables stick together so it is optional and with the ukpaka, you can go the extra mile with this recipe. 
Recipe Instruction

Cooking Directions

  1. Pour enough water to cover the yam cubes and cook till the cubes are soft and the water is a bit like porridge.
  2. Now, pour out the water from the pot, leaving the yam cubes in the pot. Cover the pot to retain the heat.
  3. Add some water from the yam (about 1 cooking spoon) to the pot containing the vegetables. Cook till the vegetable is softened by the heat. Be careful not to overcook the vegetable.
  4. Pour the cooked vegetables and other ingredients into the pot containing the yam cubes. Add the palm oil and salt to taste.
  5. Stir with a wooden spoon till all the ingredients have mixed well.
  6. The yam and vegetable is ready to be served.

Serve on its own or with Fried Plantain.
