#167. My Yummy Vegetable Yam Porridge- Christiana Stephen

Hello Moms,

So I uploaded a video on my food Instagram page of this vegetable yam porridge I made and I had lots of people asking for the recipe. Oh wow! Apart from people asking for the recipe. It was absolutely delicious and yummy. I find it a bit difficult to prepare any kind of meal without vegetables and spinach happens to be my favorite when it comes to making African food.4C061021-E5BF-47EC-B11C-1F0DEA8ED8F5
