Being able to post today is a miracle. Whatever happened I do not know, I lost internet connection completely at my location. I could not post even Merry Christmas wishes to my blog readers. Computers and phones all behaved badly. I even had to switch Internet Providers. Nothing seemed to worked. I was completely locked out of civilization. Even blog hopping became impossible after about three days here.
My village is not bush o. The only thing is that I browsed freely in Abuja but could not do same here. I had to stay up late today struggling with connections. After this post, I do not know if it would be possible to post again before I return to Abuja.
We enjoyed the Christmas with lots of healthy meals that I just could not post. After this trial post, I will try to post my Christmas recipes.
INGREDIENTS FOR MY VEGETABLE STEW
- Flutted pumpkin (Ugu)
- water leaf
- Smoked cat fish
- Knorr cubes
- palm oil
STEPS TO COOKING THIS GREEN VEGETABLE STEW
- I stir fried some chopped onion, crayfish and ground fresh peppers in hot palm oil.
- The washed smoked fish is added, then knorr cubes and salt, with a little water added and allowed to simmer until the fish is a bit tender.
- Checked for salt and added the vegetables, both water leaf and ugu at once, then continued to stir until the veggies look a bit different from when they were just added.
- Turned off the heat and served with boiled rice.
The meal is delicious, a bit crunchy, healthy and easily digested.
Variety is the spice of life, so I refuse to be tied down by jollof rice, fried rice or even rice and tomato stew.
My family loved this. The kids ate well and had fun in the bathroom the next day because, they didn't have to push too much to eliminate.
I can serve this vegetable stew with salted boiled yam, boiled potatoes, boiled unripe plantain or even use it with my eba. The ingredients can also vary depending on what I have and how I want my veggies stew.
