    jameras's Note:

    Vegetable Meat Balls, is a traditional Nigerian recipe for a classic dish of beef meatballs with potatoes, carrots and onions that are pan-fried to brown then cooked in a tomato-based sauce before being served with rice and greens. I modified it subing beef for turkey and yams for sweet potatoes (cuz they are in season here in GA)
