The food section of this blog is not reflective of how much I love beans. So to make up for that, I’ll be sharing a simple beans and yam porridge recipe you can use to make eating beans healthier and more delicious.
Plantains are a rich source of vitamin A, B6, C and magnesium, potassium and fiber. It is also great for the heart and bones. Garden egg leaves are locally known for “giving blood”. I was feeling dizzy one time and when I tried to reach out for ugu (pumpkin leaves) to use with my prescribed iron supplements, garden egg was offered instead. It contains vitamin B, C and potassium and calcium. This recipe is truly packed with a lot of goodies.
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.
What is a balanced diet? It is basically a meal consisting of all (or almost all of) the classes of food we have. Carbs, proteins, fat, vitamins and minerals.
It can be also be termed as a healthy meal comprising of whole foods with adequate calories, micro and macronutrients.
Oha soup is a soup enjoyed by the Igbo people of Nigeria. One of the things I love about the soup is that it is an actual meal on its own. You can eat alone or with eba (garri), wheat meal and the likes. It is also highly nutritious.
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. The original title had “Honey glazed turkey” so you will also find a short recipe note on it.
