Vermont-based Yummy Yammy introduces the world’s first sweet potato salsa, redefining the concept of salsa by replacing the typical tomato base with flame-roasted sweet potatoes! Founder and Yambassador, Lisa Johnson spent years perfecting the recipes for her line of 100 percent sweet potato-based salsas after brainstorming ways to incorporate more sweet potatoes into her family’s diet.
“Flame-roasted and U.S.-grown sweet potato provides a scrumptious, naturally sweet and highly nutritious base for my fun, new salsas,” Johnson says. “Most importantly, customers repeatedly rate the delicious flavor as the most important feature of the salsas, even though they also happen to be powerful and natural nutritional boosts!”
Roasting brings out the natural sweetness, rich mouth feel and phenomenal nutrition of yams in a way that commercial microwaving and steaming just can’t match. Additional ingredients like balsamic vinegar, wholesome beans and non-GMO corn enhance the flavors further.
Each jar of salsa has only 250 calories, and the salsas come in three flavors: Mexican Sweet Potato Salsa (in Mild, Medium and Hot) with Black Beans, Corn and Chipotle, Moroccan Sweet Potato Salsa with Curry, Lentil & Kale and Tuscan Sweet Potato Salsa with Roasted Red Pepper, White Bean & Basil.
Yummy Yammy’s artisanal crafted Sweet Potato Salsas are naturally fat-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, full of powerful antioxidants (50 percent RDA of Vitamin A per serving), 250 calories or less in each jar, and the list goes on. Plus, these salsas were created by someone who knows and cares where her ingredients come from. Johnson’s extensive 25-year farm to plate background includes organic farming, work in restaurants, 12 years managing and aggressively expanding natural food coops, and a decade of non-profit farm fresh initiatives designed to bring everyone closer to farmers and their wholesome produce.
Yummy Yammy’s Delicious Salsas are available at www.YummyYammy.com through Amazon for $9.99 per jar.
