A tasty yellow spring “rice”, can be given a mexican or indian flair with just a switch of spices. I imagine if you switch the curry powder for saffron and add olives it becomes “arroz”. Lovely colours too.

Recipe Directions

Place yam, coriander, garlic, curry powder and half the amount of leek in the food processor and process with the S blade until reaching a rice or cous cous-like consistency. Add salt, cayenne or chilli powder to taste, pulse again to mix.

Place the yam mix into a bowl and add the oil, corn, peas, tomato and remaining leek, stir well and serve. Serves 2.

Note: For a mexican flavour, replace curry powder with mexican spice mix.

This dish is scrumptious! I added some chopped raisins and a little cilantro. When using fresh peas, you can freeze them and then thaw them. That softens them so they have a cooked texture. You can shred the sweet potato with a cheese grater if you don't have a food processor with an S blader. Please note that yam means sweet potato in the US. Real yams are not sold in North America - these real yams should NOT be eaten raw. Only sweet potatoes can be consumed raw.

I made this yesterday and it was yummy! I used pigeon peas, which I have never tried before, and they are delicious little buggers. Thanks for the recipe; I will definitely be making this again and again.

Not that it needed improving. Totally satisfying. I had to steal it back from my non-raw DH. I have sooo many sweet potatoes from my CSA winter storage order. I know what to do with them!

Hippie Chick I'm pleased to hear that! This dish is really versatile, any combination of veggies is pretty much great, adding coconut oil is a great idea, I'm going to include it in the oils, it didn't occur to me because I ran out! Glad you enjoyed it :)

This was sooo good. Thank you so much. I have been in the mood for Indian food and this hit the spot. One addition I made was the addition of a little coconut oil. It made a huge difference in reminding me of a favorite dish. I also heated the bowl above a pot of boiling water just to slighty warm things up. Awesome. I can't wait to try fresh corn and peas. I only had them frozen from the summer harvest. Thanks again!!!

Techelet I never had tried an uncooked yam either but had some at home and decided to give it a try, it's like a drier and stiffer carrot, with a mild sweet taste. It's also great to make crunchy noodles with for carrot or other types of soup. I imagine it would also be great sliced into tortilla shapes for dipping on something like hummus. The possibilities are endless!

MMmmmm.. yumm-ay!

its funny because an indian man just told me that the reason people like their food so much and go back for more is because their body is telling them that something in it is good for them. THE SPICES!

curry powder is anticancer and super tonic!
