Yam Soup

What's better on a cold winter evening after work then a bowl of home-made warm soup? I love soup as it is healthy and comforting yet tasty. The other day I had some coworkers talk about Yam soup. So far, my grocery has never included Yam. But the conversation intrigued me to try out this vegetable.

Ingredients:
1. 2 Yams, roasted and peeled
2. Onion, 1 large, slices
3. Garlic pods, 4, cut
4. Nutmeg, a pinch
5. Salt
6. Olive oil
7. Pepper

Instructions:
1. Heat a skillet and then ad olive oil.
2. Throw in the onions and sprinkle salt over it.
3. Stir fry for a few minutes then add garlic.
4. Caramelize the onions and lower the heat.
5. Add chopped roasted yam and mash with the back of a ladle.
6. Add 2 cups water and bring to a boil.
7. Simmer on low heat for another 10 mins.
8. Let it cool.
9. Blend the liquid to a nice consistency.
10. Transfer it back to the skillet.
11. Add pepper and nutmeg and warm it up.

Serve warm.
