Forget Asaro and Poundo! Here Are 6 Alternative Yam Meals To Spice Up Your Dining Table | SR Living

Inasmuch as Nigerians love rice, that love cannot be beaten by the love we have for yam, but that point is arguable. We love yam meals so much that it even gets its own festival – the new yam festival which is widely celebrated in South-Eastern Nigeria. Most Nigerians eat yam in the pounded form with soup, as a side with beans, fried and paired with eggs or as a porridge. But yam is much more versatile than we give it credit for. In fact, it’s quite a rich food item with a lot of scrumptious recipes and delicacies to take pleasure in.

Do you have a tuber of yam in your hand but don’t know what meal to whip up other than the usual suspects I called out above. As always, we have got you covered with unique ways to serve yam that has nothing to do with your regular boiled, pounded, roasted or even fried yam.
