Recipe Notes

The smaller you chop the potato, the faster the soup will cook; as I am preparing this for a demonstration, the cook time is shorter as I took longer with my preparation before the client arrived. To save preparation time, chunk the veggies and extend the cooking time.
I also cook until the yam is just beginning to mash; is is a firm mash. Then I puree to preserve the nutrients as much as possible.
