Here at The Outspoken Yam, we support all yam-related endeavors, so this company was CLEARLY a match made in Miami. I was so excited that I actually signed up for it without really considering how it might taste. Sweet Potato….Salsa? It sounds a little strange, right? Well, luckily I’m a little strange too, which is why you love me, don’t even lie.
I received three flavors of Yummy Yammy salsa to try: Mexican, Tuscan and Moroccan. These are the only commercially available salsas made with 100% pure roasted sweet potato instead of tomato as a base. This gives them a huge nutritional boost, not to mention the amazing color and flavor of yams. These salsas contain no fat and only 250 calories in the entire jar!
Of the three, I think the Tuscan salsa was my favorite. It contains roasted red peppers, white bean and basil. I’m not a huge fan of super-hot foods and honestly the heat in this barely registers. The peppers add a deepness and complexity rather than fire. The white beans give it a hearty feel and the basil compliments everything perfectly. The basil combines with balsamic vinegar and garlic, giving it a truly Tuscan flavor.
If you like more heat in your salsa, you should go for the Mexican flavor. It combines black bean, corn, and chipotle, cayenne, jalapeno and lime juice for an authentic burst of spicy Mexican flavor. This would be amazing on tortillas or corn husk wrapped tamales!
The Moroccan salsa features curry, lentil and kale along with cayenne, lemon and lime juice, and garlic. The citrus plus the heat plus the sweetness of the fire-roasted yams gives this such rich complexity and layering of flavors. I wouldn’t say it reminds me of traditional salsa, it’s like something else entirely- but definitely a deliciously unexpected experience!
