Agege Bread Pizza

Pizza is an import to Nigeria and because of its unique taste, it's not surprising that it has become so popular, especially among the younger generation of Nigerians. The establishment of pizza food companies such as Domino's, in many African countries including Nigeria, has made pizza more accessible and it...

Honey Bean Hummus

Just because I cannot settle for the usual, I present honey bean hummus...! I have made this dish many times before, and I kind of love the taste and smooth texture. It is simple to make too. Here served with plantain chips, it can be served with bread, boiled yam,...

Red Cabbage Cake

This cake recipe is born out of my desire to eat healthy cakes. In my mind, I am thinking that adding vegetables to cake recipes will make them more healthy and hopefully still allow my occasional indulgence in a good dessert dish...! Vegetables have been successfully added to cakes, most...
As explained in a previous post, cabbage is a really healthy vegetable to eat, and eating it regularly has lots of benefits! Read post on cabbage here. Nigerians mostly eat cabbages in slaws and salads, which makes their use limited. But from all my different exploration and experimentation, I have discovered...

Jollof Spaghetti

I love jacket potatoes, and every time I am in the UK, I make sure I eat them as often as I can, solely because I can only get the really large ones, not the smaller ones we get in Nigeria. I believe, the larger the potato, the better...

Sticky Rice Cake

There is something about sticky starchy rice that I find really "sexy" and comforting. Some people love their rice al dente cooked/soft, I love mine a little mushy. And if paired with the right type of accompanying sauce, the eating experience is incredible..! The Japanese are known for their incredible sticky rice...
Sometimes when entertaining visitors, you do not have to go all out to cook the usual, you know, rice, pounded yam with all sorts of soups bursting with different cuts of meat and fish. Little bits here and there and a bit of creativity is all you need to wow...

Suya For Lunch

So I was not feeling so hungry today, I just wanted something a little spicy and savory. I also wanted something sweet and crispy/crunchy. I am home alone today and after rummaging through the fridge for a while, I came across some beef suya made by my brother-in-law (uncle Sam)....

Plantain & Bean Hummus by Funke Koleosho - The Christian Mail
Beans and plantains are a foodie match. Their tastes and flavours, textures complement each other so well. As one gets older, it's advised to make plant proteins the primary source of protein, and in Nigerian cuisine, beans (cow-peas) features prominently on the list of vegetables with high protein content. Beans...
