A classic meal with a bit of a twist. I've added grated carrot to give it a slightly different texture and kept it oil-free. When it comes to comfort food, it doesn't get any better than this. 

(serves 6)
 - half of a medium-sized yam (peeled and cut into cubes)
- 6 carrots (grated)
- 6 cups red pepper mix (blend of tomatoes and peppers)
- 2 cups vegetable stock
- Salt to taste
- Spring onions (chopped, to garnish)

Place the yam, grated carrot, red pepper mix and vegetable stock in a large pot and stir to combine well. 

Cook for 40 mins on low-medium heat, making sure to give it a good stir half-way through the cooking time (to stop it sticking to the bottom)

Serve hot with a garnish of chopped spring onions.


  1. Any recipe that has yam in it will catch my attention anytime. Oh yes, pepper too :-)

    How do you make the vegetable stock? Sounds like a very simple meal. Thanks for sharing!

    1. You're welcome Relentless, thanks for stopping by. I'll put up a recipe for home-made vegetable stock later today :)
