Iyan (Pounded Yams)


  • 4 yams, peeled (canned yams may be substituted, if necessary)
  • Water
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Rinse the yams in water and slice them into chunks. Place chunks in a large pot or saucepan. If substituting canned yams, pour the contents of the can into a saucepan, but do not add additional water.
  2. Bring to a boil and cook, uncovered, about 20 minutes (10 minutes for canned yams), or until soft enough that a fork is easily inserted.
  3. Drain the yams and place them into a blender (or mash by hand). Blend until smooth.
  4. Season with salt and serve with soup or stew.
Serves 6.
