10 Things You Can Do With Yam

May 2, 2020

There’s been yam slander on the TL lately, and I cannot for the life of me understand why people intentionally make bad choices. How can you open the mouth that is in your head and say that yam is not an exciting food? Ahan, is it that you don’t have taste or what?

As a means of educating this person (and all of you who like to bad mouth yam), I will share ten things you can make with yam.

1. You can boil it.

And eat it with stew, egg sauce, or oil.

2. You can fry it.

3. You can roast it.
