Simple Yam Pottage

750g yam (peeled and cut into small chunks)
100g spinach leaves
1/2 large onion
1 paprika pepper
1/2 teaspoon Foodace Pepper soup spice 
150g smoked mackerel fillets
1 scotch bonnet (optional)
4 tablespoons palm oil 
1 knorr seasoning cube
1 cup water
salt to taste
Place yam and mackerel fillets in a medium pot. Set aside.
In a blender, add onion, scotch bonnet, paprika pepper and water; blend until smooth. 
Pour blended mix into the yam pot, add seasoning cube, salt, palm oil and boil on a medium heat. 
Allow boiling for 8 minutes, stir and reduce gas heat; allow simmering so the yam can soak up ingredients and soften nicely too. 
Allow to simmer for another 8 minutes or until yam is cooked nicely.
Once cooked and thickened, add spinach; stir and  turn off gas.
Turn occasionally as this encourages thickening of the yam.
