 3/4   tsp  nutmeg
 1/4   tsp  salt
 1/4   cup  currants
 - dice the yam (1/2 - 3/4 inch dice?) and steam for five minutes
   OR  microwave for five minutes then dice
 - add all ingredients except currants to a pot boil then simmer for
 around 15 minutes.  Stir occasionally

 all liquid is absorbed, the endosperm (?) has uncurled, and the quinoa
