How To Cook Healthy Coconut Spaghetti With Coconut Milk And Peas

milky coconut pasta/spaghetti cooked with coconut milk

Spaghetti can be boiled and eaten with stew,  boiled and served with chicken, beef or fish pepper soup, it can be cooked like fried rice and  can also be cooked in the form of jollof spaghetti. Quick, delicious and healthy macaroni can also be cooked this way. Macaroni may take a shorter time to cook.Here I went a
step further to cook coconut spaghetti just like we cook coconut rice. 

It was so tasty, full of coconut milk flavour and fun to eat. This meal was prepared after dinner time, as a result, everyone said it was too late to eat, and that they wanted something lighter. I had to leave it till the next day. The last picture and the serving in the orange plate show how it looked the next day after reheating.

    nice one, i thot i was the only one doing this. since my colleagues think i take the coconut thing way too much.
    though for this mixed coconut jollof spag, i parboil the spaghetti for like 5 mins, keep aside and rinse wt lots of water so that the mushyness will not be much in the food,before adding it to the coconut water mixture.
    another one i do also is boil my spaghetti in coconut water like boiled white rice, then do mixed vegetable sauce using the coconut milk as my water for the sauce.

    1. Thank you for this tips dear, next time I will definitely parboil my spaghetti and also reduce the quantity of milk by half.

    This blog has really changed the temperature in my family. Since I discovered this blog and started trying out Eya's recipes. My husband's complaining about my food just stopped automatically. These days he asks for more. Now I fear he may put on more weight o. God bless you for this unique blog.
