EasyPeasy Yummy Lentils

P1080257

Got the idea for these yummy lentils from a sister of mine from Sri Lanka. I remember when I stayed at her flat in London once and she made this for me. First of all, it was DELISH!! and secondly, I couldn’t stop eating it.  I just couldn’t believe how simple it was when she told me about the recipe. This was from her mom to her and luckily down to me.

Wanna try at least one simple lentil recipe? Make it this one and you won’t regret it. Trust me.

Thank you Madusha 😉 Continue reading

Okra “soup”

A little background and why I have written soup like so…. “soup”. I remember when I arrived in England some years back now and one day my big sister, who has been living here for a while said to me, would you like some soup Aijay? And I said, oh yes please. And she came up to me with a bowl of watery, light and drinkable stuff. And I was like, that is soup? And she said yeah! Here soup is a different ball game bebe!

Moi-Moi (Bean cake)

Evening lovers, today brings a Nigerian classic to the world of freeflow foodies. Since my pregnancy I have seriously been craving (with a big C) food from my country and we happened to discover that there is a shop just 5 mins from our flat that does just that. This guy sells everything, Indian food, Chinese food, African food and most especially Nigerian food! Ben and I were like wah!!!!! So let’s just say I’m a super happy bunny right now.

Tomato Spaghetti mama

I met these voluptuous ladies yesterday at the market and I knew I had to have them. I went home and started thinking of what to make with them. One thing for sure in my heart was that I wanted to keep them as they were and show off their curves and beauty. So here is what I made for dinner last night. I loved the ‘aliveness’ of it all the fresh and clean taste of the raw tomatoes with the basil spaghetti leaving a strong hint of nutmeg on the finish. But if you don’t like raw tomatoes my dears, please do look away now because it’s about to get juicy :-). Bonjour Bonjour and tomato love to you all. Continue reading

Cinnamon Potato porridge

I had some potatoes I had bought from the farmers market since last week and they started to grow babies and stuff so I thought, “Aijay, now is the time, use it or lose it”. So I thought to make something influenced from my childhood in Nigeria. The original dish has lots of sassy Nigerian-spices, dried fish and a hot chilli kick to it. It is called Yam Porridge. Well seeing as I don’t have any yam or any of the very flavourful Nigerian spices at hand, I decided to try and make something similar. Continue reading
