Foodie Time: How To Prepare Yam Bolognese

Sounds interesting right? I found this specialty on 9jafoodie and I just had to try it out. It will do great for lunch or dinner.

Typically, Bolognese sauce is a meat-based Italian sauce served with pasta, but here we are doing it the yam way.

Here is the recipe:
Bolognese Sauce
3 cups minced meat
½ teaspoon each (Ground- Ginger, garlic and pepper)
Salt – to taste
1 cubed spice
2 sprigs Green onions – chopped
1 cup water
1 tsp. flour

Pan Roasted Yam
½ medium yam tuber (900g) – peeled, cubed and wash
Salt – to taste
3 Tbsps. Coconut or vegetable oil
½ tsp ground pepper
1 small onion – thinly sliced
1 cubed spice


1. In a pot, cover washed yam with water and set on medium-high heat. Boil for 15-18 minutes or until just fork-tender. Drain and set aside to cool slightly.
2. While yam is boiling, place another pot on high heat; add in minced meat, spices, salt, cubed spice, and chopped onion. Stir-fry for 5-7 minutes or until meat is browned and cooked. Add in 1 cup of water and flour. Stir to combine. Remove from heat and set aside.
4. Combine cooked yam with salt, pepper, and your desired spice
5. Add oil to a skillet and heat until hot. Add yam. Allow the yam to brown underneath. Flip yam and brown on other side for 2-3 sides. Add in onions and stir-fry gently for another 2-3 minutes.
6. Add sauce into cooked yam. Cover and simmer for 5 more minutes. Serve and enjoy.
