Buka Stew …Iya Basira Stew

6 comments

‘Iya Basira’s’ stew has been saving lives since forever. I must confess here, I have had a few share of iya basira’s beef stew (Iya Basira is an alias for some of the many women who owns a buka or ‘mama put’ in common parlance). In fact one of my friends used to say the dirtier the better simply meaning that the more skanky the restaurant (Buka) looks, the better the food tastes.

Nigerian Spinach Stew (Ace Efo Riro)

0 comments

I recently fell in love with Uziza leaf and our love has kept blossoming in my kitchen. It is early days but I think you can guess by now that I added uziza leaves to this efo riro. Well I did, and I have no regrets. Efo riro is for us the yorubas and as a proud Yoruba gal I am allowed to brag and I can tell you, I know how to cook delicious efo riro.

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.

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.

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,

Ayamase (Designer stew)

8 comments

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.

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.
