Boiled Plantains

January 6, 2010 | 13 Comments

Boiled Plantains are a typical Nigerian dish. They’re one of the many ways to cook plantains and are very fuss free to prepare, not to mention, much healthier than frying.

So when next you’re not sure of how else to cook your plantain, try boiling! For directions & more, keep reading!

Fried Plantains

December 7, 2009 | 4 Comments

I’ll be starting a series of posts that are geared mainly to the beginner. Whether this is your first time cooking or your second attempt after a failed try, these posts will help you learn the very basics of cooking.

There’s nothing to be ashamed of if you can’t fry plantains or cook rice or make eba/garri. The first thing started off learning when I started cooking was how to boil rice. It sounds easy now, but back then, it was trial and error. As are a lot of things with cooking, sometimes you’ll make something and it just turns out awful, no harm done, it’s simply a lesson learned and I’m sure the next time you make it, it’ll be better than the first. For directions & more, keep reading!

Baked Sweet Potato Chunks

I love sweet potatoes, I can eat them as fries, mashed or baked. I bought some to go with pork chops and decided to bake them in a foil wrapper along with some seasonings. It was a different take that turned out oh so amazing. For directions & more, keep reading!

Asian Fillet

I’m baaaack! Anyway, I have a few posts, three really, but this is the first of them. Not quite sure why I called it Asian fillet. I was going to simply call it Plantain and Fish, but that’s too plain, no?

Anyway, this is a really, really easy recipe. If you order Chinese food and keep those little soy sauce, sweet & sour sauce packets and have quite a few, now’s a good time to put them to good use. For directions & more, keep reading!

Skillet Potato Medley

July 16, 2009 | 2 Comments

I usually have some odd ends and bits laying around in the kitchen. Most of these are coming to the end of their lifespan (in my kitchen anyways) and if I can’t think of something to make them into, they end up in the garbage.

This is the story of two potatoes I bought a while ago; one regular potato and one sweet potato. My intention when I bought these was to make steak and potatoes. The steak I made, but the potatoes I decided against, no particular reason. For directions & more, keep reading!
