A recipe for spinach and yam soup involves combining canned yams with chopped vegetables, broth and milk. A yam dessert recipe calls for canned yams, sugar, spices, cream and marshmallows.
To make the soup, fry 1 cup onion, 1/2 cup celery, 1 red bell pepper and 2 tablespoons garlic before whisking in 1 cup flour and 48 ounces chicken broth. Dice the yams from two 15-ounce cans, and add them to the mixture. Stir in 10 ounces spinach, 1/2 cup scallions and 2 cups of milk.
To prepare the dessert, mash the yams from a 29-ounce can before combining them with 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. Incorporate 1 tablespoon butter, 1/4 cup cream and 6 halved marshmallows. Transfer the mixture into a baking dish, and scatter 10 marshmallows on top. Bake it at 350 F for approximately 20 minutes.
