Hi everyone!! If you are looking for a meal your family members will love, this is certainly it. Yam pepper soup is simply your regular pepper soup with a touch of difference.
Typically, this meal originated from the South-south; as a western Nigerian, I remember while growing up, yam and fish stew were served as breakfast at namings, Christmas and New year days in my home. But that was back then, now this rich luscious meal is no longer restricted to the South-south people but giving to us all to enjoy!! Lol!! We westerners can do this as our win-win meal anytime any day.
A beautiful side to this meal is that either you are on a high or a low budget thing, you can cook this meal and still end up with a yummy delicacy. From catfish to tilapia fish pepper soup, dried fish to smoked fish, goat meat to beef assorted, cow leg to cow head…. you can add your own variation to this soup.
For the pepper soup spice, you can either get the already prepared powder at the local market or prepare it all by yourself at home. Check out this DIY at
As a good source of carbohydrates, eating your yam this way is kind of spectacular… My 6-year-old in particular love this meal. It’s a nice way of getting your kids to really eat yam, my girl does not usually eat yam but if made this way, it’s her choice meal.
So let us cook!
