yummy yam puree

Well I am sick at home. Actually I am sick working from home. I haven’t been sick for ages and now that it hit me it feels really bad. I am having a cold. It’s not that ugly but I wish I could be up and running like usual. I can’t even go for my groceries and I have to depend on my mom. Who I asked to get me sweet potatoes and instead she brought me yams. And these yams were white. And yams are not that sweet. And yams smell different in a weird way. And I soooo bad wanted to make sweet potato puree. Seriously… yams????

I wasn’t going to give up. I was going to make that damn puree no matter what.  And I did. And it was soooo good!!! The rest of it was just soup. A pot with 2 lt of soup. Yes, I am sick and I hate it.  And all I eat is soup.

Ingredients

1 big yam
2 medium potatoes
2 carrots
3/4 cup of unsweetened soy milk
2 TS nutritional yeast
3 TS olive oil
1 lt vegetable broth
salt and pepper to taste

Peel and cut the yam, potatoes and carrots in big chunks and cook them over medium hit in the vegetable broth for about 20 minutes. Drain and save the broth. Mash the yam, potatoes and carrots using a wire masher. Add the nutritional yeast, soy milk and olive oil and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.

I served mine over red sauce and topped it with beans and veggies which I cooked in the reserved vegetable broth.
