Creamy and Rich Nagaimo Yam Soup

Creamy and Rich Nagaimo Yam Soup

This soup has no butter or cream, but it is so rich and delicious. You'll want to make it again and again.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Nagaimo yam
120 g
★ Unflavored soy milk and milk combined
300 ml
★Soup stock granules
1/2 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
Black pepper and parsley (optional, to garnish with)
To taste


1. Peel the nagaimo with a peeler and slice into rounds. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for about 3.5 minutes at 600W.
2. Blend the yam with a food processor or a hand-held blender.
3. Put the yam and the ingredients marked with a ★ in a pan, and simmer over low to medium heat. Don't let it boil, and stir until thickened. It's ready to serve. ♪
4. Tip: I used 200 ml of soy sauce and 100 ml of milk this time.
5. Tip: If you want to serve it as a cold soup, put it in a container when the soup cools down and chill in the fridge for a few hours.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to enjoy the creamy texture of nagaimo yam in a soup.
Finding that a mixture of yam, soy milk and milk produces a cheese-like flavour is a great discovery.
