Looking for an unconventional yet still festive meal – then try this gluten-free harissa meatballs, saffron rice and harissa-butter corn.
I think I have been slacking in my ‘no special occasion is complete without this traditional dish’ Jollof rice sharing duties.
I mean, what’s up with having only one Jollof rice recipe on my blog? Any one who grew up in African would have at least three Jollof recipes up their sleeves.
I think it is time to share my easy peasy, ready in 15 mins healthy grilled salmon recipe with a vibrant tropical salsa. It is healthy, drool worthy and tastes great. What’s not to like.
I was in recipe name limbo. I could not decide if I want to call this recipe okra sauce, or okro soup, or palmoil okro or okra soup Sierra Leonean style. Like serious name limbo and not much of an answer after three days. Thing is, at home in Sierra Leone, when we say okra, this is what we mean.
Today I am sharing my version of a Tanzanian seafood curry. The mussels are cooked in a sauce spiced with cloves, cardamom, coriander and ginger and enriched with some creamy coconut milk and delicious finely sieved tomatoes. Oh folks, just imagine the rich flavours in this.
I first had Nigerian beef suya, a few years ago, when I took Freddy on his first ever visit to Sierra Leone.
Why not add an African twist to pasta with this coconut, pancetta and cheese spaghetti cabonara. It is ready in just 15 mins.
Folks, I finally made some Jollof spaghetti aka Jollof pasta. And it is so good that I am trying to convince my sister to serve some up at her wedding next year. Heck, we all know that it is no West African party if it has not got some Jollof rice in it somewhere right. So why not go over board and serve up some jollof pasta too.
This one-pot black-eyed beans and sweet potato recipe with palm oil (bean and sweet potato pottage) is finger-licking street food at its best.
I tend to miss Sierra Leone a lot at this time of the year. So I cook a lot of Sierra Leonean recipes and other African recipes, like this super easy sausage okra fried rice. It has two of my favorite things aka okra and rice and can be ready in just 25 mins. Perfect weeknight supper right?
