Afang Soup

What can I say about this beautiful, delicious and hearty soup other than, if you have not had it before, you should try and cook it. It is rich and packed with all the nutrients you need. If you are on a diet and you are not sure if you can have some Nigerian soups because of the oil content and all, then this soup is for you.

Catfish pepper soup

Some few weeks ago, one of my instagram buddies posted catfish pepper soup and tagged me. Her picture got me drooling and craving. I told her I was going to make mine….. Anyway, long story short, I made catfish pepper soup that night under the pretence that it would help my cold at the time.

Easy Mackerel tomato stew

If you have not been using uziza to cook, you don’t know what you are missing. I recently started to add uziza leaves to some of the dishes I cook and it has lifted every dish I used it in. I made this tomato stew recently and yes I have to share it with you my fellow foodie. It is very easy to make

Groundnut Soup (Omisagwe)

The Yoruba’s have a saying that “obe ti baale ile kii nje, iyawo ile o gbodo se” meaning “a wife does not prepare a delicacy her husband does not want or eat”.  Well I beg to disagree, hahaha with the hope that my ancestors wouldn’t mind.

What brought this on? Bae doesn’t like peanuts, and well he is kind of allergic to it. Each time I bring up the idea of cooking groundnut soup,

Assorted meat pepper soup

The weather around here is not the type one can ask for right now. It is so windy that if you are not careful and you lose your balance, you may find yourself in the next street. I was home today and I couldn’t think of what to cook in this confused weather, I was thinking something quick and spicy. I checked my freezer for what to cook and yes! Pepper soup called to me

Ayamase (Designer stew)

Ayamase also called designer stew is the ‘fraternal twin’ of the ofada stew I recently made. The same ingredients are used except for tomatoes and instead of using the red bell pepper; you use the green bell pepper. You can use variety of green peppers and chillies you want. Ayamase requires a lot of patience when cooking and in my opinion it tastes a lot better when left to rest for some few minutes or hours before serving.

Eba roll/Croissant

Gone are the days when we slap Nigerian food on the plate. This current day, our soup staples (morsel types) are presented in an appealing and appetising ways.  I posted Ofe Onugbu on Facebook recently and I had a request on how to make Eba roll, I know this post (eba roll) is available on some other food blogs but hey it is rather late here than never.

Banga Soup (Niger-Delta way)

The first time I ever tasted Banga soup was with my dad in Lagos. We were at this restaurant and he ordered Banga soup. I started interrogating him immediately, what is Banga soup? What is it made of etc? My dad just told me, ‘IYA’, calm down, you will see it when they serve us! When they served him his soup, it was in a clay pot.  You need to see the look on my face that day.  What!!!
