Gbegiri Soup (Abula)

8 comments

I’m starting this month’s post with my gran’s (Iya Dele) staple, Gbegiri or popularly called abula in some other part of Yoruba land in Nigeria. My grandma used to sell this food and I remember people queuing up every evening to buy from her, she usually serve her gbegiri with Tuwo (corn flour). She prided herself in using fresh ingredients; my best part of the soup is the bone marrow and biscuit-bone that she uses.

How To Make Akara (Koose)

I recently made a post on how to peel soaked beans by using a blender. I made some akara and even preserved some left over peeled beans for later in the freezer. Akara is a very popular meal and street food in Nigeria. In fact akara is readily available almost everywhere you turn to, it is also served on special occasions too.

Nigerian Stewed Beans (Ewa Riro)

I used to think I know how to cook stewed beans till I met my hubby, I am more inclined to cooking my sauce separately (Agoyin/buka style) as that is the way I like it.  But ever since I learnt how to cook his style of stewed beans, I have not looked back and with the help of a pressure cooking pot, it means I can cook my beans in about 45 minutes.

Rice and beans is a popular meal combination eaten in Nigeria; it is also popular in some part of West Africa too. I know of the Ghana waakye and the Hausa’s of the Northern part of Nigeria also have their own way of cooking it likewise. Rice and beans is a very tasty, hearty and easy meal to make.
