I recently went on a mixed pepper stir fry craze and I’m dragging you into it. I made it with baked chicken paired with grilled yam, rice and beans, rice and plantain. The focus will be on the stir fry with short notes on each of the accompaniment.
Fun Fact – Bell peppers have more vitamin C than oranges, so this recipe is bursting with loads of vitamin C.
This is a healthy and fun recipe, with focus on the avocado salsa and peppered gizzard, since you only have to boil the brown rice with just water. The great thing about this avocado salsa is you can pair with almost any food of choice. From rice to corn to yam.
Ofada rice is made using the local rice grown in Nigeria. It is different from the typical rice because it is more difficult to mill and polish, therefore some or all of the rice bran is left on the grain, strengthening the flavour and making it more nutritious than the more common rice imported. While it is indigenous to the Yoruba people (Ogun state specifically), it is now a party staple in major cities of the country (and beyond). As usual, I’ll be showing you a super fun and easy way to prepare ofada rice and the stew made specially for it called ayamase.
I had to include party-worthy in the title because jollof rice lovers know there is jollof rice, party jollof rice and concoction rice. Out of which we love party jollof rice the most, rave about it and use it as our claim to culinary fame. I am all about holistic living and hence do not like sachet tomato (puree) paste. Some people have argued by adding it is the only way to achieve proper jollof rice in all its orangish-red glory… I disagree.
Wow! Such a long title. I couldn’t think of a shorter name, because as with most recipes I invent, I’m lost as to what to name it that fully captures all the unique ingredients that make it what it is. On the plate, there is cooked brown rice, the bell peppers sauce with chicken prawns, and moi-moi. If you have followed my blog before my hiatus, you will know my recipes are typically easy to recreate. I’m lazy and I love delicious food, so I find innovative ways to make everything nice and easy. I will be taking it step by step for ease.
Yes… You read right. I made scrambled eggs with pineapple, and the taste was so heavenly. When I finished eating I just staring at my plate thinking why I didn’t do it sooner. The decision to add pineapple to the egg was spontaneous. I was thinking of a way to jazz up my food and bam!
