How To Cook Porridge Yam (Yam Pottage Recipe)

When it comes to breakfast, there are few things more comforting than a bowl of hot porridge. And while there are many different ways to make porridge, one of our favorites is with yam.

Yam porridge is a hearty and filling breakfast that will keep you going all morning long. Plus, it's super easy to make! Just follow these simple steps and you'll have a delicious bowl of yam porridge in no time.

First, you'll need to cook your yam after peeling. We like to bake ours, but you can also boil or steam it. Just make sure it's cooked all the way through before proceeding.

Once your yam is cooked, add it to a blender or food processor with some water and blend until smooth.

Next, add the yam puree to a pot of boiling water and stir until combined.

Now, it's time to add your favorite porridge toppings. We like to add a little bit of honey and some fresh fruit, but you can really add whatever you like.

And that's it! Just give your yam porridge a final stir and enjoy.

What is Yam porridge Made of?

  • African yamYam comes in different species, but the best one for this recipe is African yam.
  • Red Bell Pepper, tomato, and habanero pepper: the blend of these three will make a perfect pepper mix for the porridge. 
  • Fresh Palm OilThere is no yam porridge without oil. Fresh palm oil gives it the color and makes it fluffy.
  • Onion: Onions bring the flavor out of the porridge. You need onions for the pepper mix and the porridge itself. 
  • Salt and Chicken bouillon powder: This will bring out the taste of the porridge. Ensure that you add in moderate quantity.
  • Fish and crayfish: add this to spice up the meal. You can add mackerel, crab meat, stockfish, or dried fish. 
  • Vegetables/Herbs: perfect the meal with herbs like basil, parsley, scent leaves, and any other leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, or fluted pumpkin leaf (Ugwu).

  • Peel and cut and rinse the yam. Ensure that you rinse the yam more than once until the water is clear and no longer cloudy. The yam should be in medium-sized chunks about 2 inches thick.
  • Blend your pepper mix. Blend the bell pepper, habanero, tomato, and half onion.
  • Cook the yam and the pepper mix together. Put the first yams inside a pot, and add the pepper mix, salt, bouillon powder, and water. Cover and let it cook for 10 minutes on medium to high heat.
  • Stir in the Palm oilsliced onions, and crayfish. Cover again and let it cook extra 10 minutes.
  • Mash the yams. You can use a potato masher or a wooden spoon. I love to mash some yams and keep some chunks. It gives more texture!
  • Add the fish. You can smoke fish, dried, boiled, canned, or stockfish. You can also add smoked turkey or any other meat you prefer.
  • Simmer for an additional 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the herbs or any other leafy vegetable of your choice.
