Roasted Organic NZ Red Yam Soup

Roasted Organic NZ Red Yam Soup

Yams have a fascinating history and have been cultivated for thousands of years. Native to Africa and Asia, these red tubers made their way to New Zealand and have become a staple in many cuisines. Their vibrant red flesh and slightly sweet taste make them a versatile ingredient for a variety of dishes.
