I like fried garlic and chillies and have probably eaten every vegetable you can think of topped with this combo. I do mean every vegetable you can think of. Try it yourself and see how it transforms your green beans into something special.
Guys, finally I got some puff puff for you.
Roasted okra (lady fingers) will make a unique addition to all the lovely barbeques you are (most definitely) going to be hosting this summer. This is snacking made sexy – trust me.
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.
It turns out that baking plantains in the oven is very easy and much healthier than deep frying them.
I love making these cute mini baked plantain frittatas with the kiddoes. They are quick and easy to make and simply involve whisking eggs along with leftover plantains, chives and spring onion before baking them. For a grown up version add in some chilli sauce.
This year I want to incorporate okra into the Sierra Leonean inspired Christmas menu. My first recipe is this roasted sweet potato and okra salad with a bite from the spring onions and chilli and a tart lime salad dressing. This is my base salad recipe but I will add different veggies, meats etc to it depending on what we have going on the day.
These will be the best baked sweet potato fries of your life. They are lip smacking, smoky paprika’y’, just one more sweet potato fry good. And since they are baked, they are guilt free in my book. So I have them as a snack, served along some burgers or as a dinner side. And emmm, well when ever really.
Come Christmas, a feast is prepared across all homes in Sierra Leone. The centre piece dish of jollof rice is made even tastier by a sweet oniony stew. The roast chicken and roasted pork ribs are accompanied by warm fried plantains, sweet potato, meat patties, coleslaw and delicious peanut gravy. Next are the heaped piles of cassava and yams to help mop up the steaming bowls of pepper soup.
