African Yam Stew

I made this last night and it was great! very simple and very good for you. i tasted it before adding the lemon juice and i think that i liked it better without, but the recipe (from a nutrition book - becoming vegetarian) called for it, so i've included it below. i added some cooked tomatoes at the same time as the yams. i used 2 very rounded teaspoons of some chinese chili garlic sauce i had in the fridge. i ate it with a dolop of yogurt. nothing else needed, it's a complete meal. my boyfriend ate it with pita though. i can't wait for the leftovers tonight :-)
