If there is still any of us who can't read the mobile blog, maybe it's not the device, you just need to try and get more used to the smart phone like she did and is reading now with ease. A little playing with fingers on the screen and you figure out. I borrowed someones' smart phone today to read WC and see how it looks cos on my tablet, couldn't just understand as it shows PC view. So, I saw clearly that all the fonts are red, both topic and full post and that's not the settings, it's

Quick Cook Nutritious Mushrooms Egg Meal (Egg Omelette with salad) By Lizzy Obaze

Nutritious egg omelette cooking.
It's been a while I sent a post to WC.  After over indulging on my 10days holiday in sunny Costa Del Sol, Malaga Spain, it's time to shift the excess gained. Here we go.

Fry the Spring onions, baby spinach, mushroom, mixed coloured peppers and sausage with very little extra virgin olive oil, salt and seasoning to taste.
I then added 2 whisked eggs by spreading it over the veggies in the pan. I then turned off  the heat and placed the pan in the oven on high temperature for 8-10mins. Thats it. Serve with salad, bread, wrap, noodles or rice.

Naija club sandwich with a twist
 There are no laid down rules as to the contents of a sandwich. The fillings in a sandwich are basically by choice and this ought to qualify our 'bread and akara' as a sandwich!

This particular club sandwich was inspired by the presence of Avocado pear! Yes, they are very much in season and are been flaunted everywhere by the sellers; in the market, street corners etc. Avocado pear is a very healthy and tempting fruit. Its calories content are very healthy and for a person dieting, you can take a whole pear for a standard meal.

In making this club sandwich, I deliberately didn't use

Unripe Plantain Fritters By Zinny

Unripe plantain fritters. Not spicy so, I guess pregnant moms will love this
 Peel and grate the plantain using the side of grater that would give it a flaky look(I used small and big pores to get an uneven texture). Remove the seed from the tomatoes. Dice the tomatoes, onions and pepper and place in a small bowl. Add the flour, salt, maggi and whisked egg and combine thoroughly. (I used my fingers to do this.) Add the mashed fish and if you've got a sweet tooth or making this for kids, you can

Ofe Onugbu Soup By Zinny

A plate of Nigerian ofe onugbu soup

Sorry I'm posting just the end product. I'm not very good at patiently taking step by step pictures while cooking.

Palm fruit (Akwu, Banga)
Meat (I used Cow tripe and)
Cocoyam (Ede Orie)
Stock fish head
Dry Fish (Mangala)
Dried Prawn (Opollo) or crayfish
Bitter leaf (Onugbu)

Cooking Method:
I washed my bitter leaf myself just to get a very fresh taste. Except you are lucky, most of the washed bitter leaf sold in the market in the city aren't always fresh or well washed. Make sure you wash at least 5times, depending on the quantity to get a bitter free leaf.(Some people like a bit of bitterness though, just a bit).
Wash your banga and Cocoyam and put in a pot with water and put on fire to boil. Once the Banga gets really tender, You bring out separately and pound in a mortar until the skin comes of totally and you can clearly see the oiled nuts.

The trick in washing banga is speed. You need to extract the oil while its still hot. Some people wash the Banga with warm water. Wash your Banga while adding water little at a time to get the oil extract. Place the oil extract on fire and immediately add your meat(For some, they pre boil the meat. I don't do this and its your choice to make).

 The Cocoyam should

Asaro (Yam Porridge) By Chidinma

Nutritious Yam Porridge
 Hello, Aunt Eya, this is the recipe.

Thank you, for having me over again. I'd like to introduce you to:

Asaro, My Way

With all the ways yam can be cooked (fried, baked, mashed, pounded), I find that, more often than not, I turn to yam porridge.

Yam porridge (Asaro), when cooked right, is a delight to behold, and to taste. It always has a spicy creaminess (I'm sure that's not a word), and the yams just melt in your mouth. The stock from
