Egg sauce cooked with shea butter, served with bread rolls, watermelon and some green for breakfast.

Eating shea butter is the perfect way to nourish the skin from inside out. The benefits we gain from rubbing shea butter on our skin and
hair are similar to those we gain from consuming unrefined shea butter. shea butter has natural anti-inflammatory properties and is high in antioxidants. There are so many ways of using unrefined shea butter aside rubbing as body and hair cream. Cooking with shea butter is actually healthier than dairy butter. Unrefined shea butter can add a new nice flavour to vegetables and to grains too. Have you tried cooking rice or beans with shea butter? 

Do not cook with refined shea butter or shea butter lotion. It has to be unrefined. I made egg sauce this morning for breakfast using unrefined shea butter and it tastes great. When cooked, that kinda rancid shea butter aroma is completely lost. The reason I used  to be sceptical about cooking food with shea butter is because I felt like the food will have some shea butter aroma or taste but NO. Food tastes good. The ingredients overpowers everything, gives me a delicious pot of egg sauce that's healthy and great for my body. Unrefined shea butter is 100% safe to eat ands the benefits of shea butter are numerous. I do not believe all sources that say their shea butter is unrefined, so, what I do is order from a source I have always known and I know some blog readers who started ordering from the first day that Sheamapo Organics put up a post on this blog and are still using his unrefined shea butter till date. 

Breakfast Egg sauce cooked with unrefined shea butter, served with bread rolls, watermelon and greens
Get unrefined shea butter only from trusted sources, there's so much adulterated shea butter sold in markets. Cooking with unrefined shea butter is actually healthier than dairy butter.

 2 eggs
1 small piece onion
2 scotch bonnets
1 small tomato
2 teaspoons unrefined shea butter
A pinch of salt
Served 2 adults. #deliciousandhealthy


dd shea butter to a heated frying pan, let it melt and get hot.

 Crack eggs into a bowl, whisk together with pepper, onion, tomato, and salt or seasoning, then pour in the heated pan

 Egg sauce like scrambled eggs cooks really fast. So, stir, check for salt and turn off the heat.

I served with bread rolls and some vegetables; watermelon.

A few months back, I was lucky to order during promo even though I wasn't aware of the promo, he sent so much and informed me that I was only paying for half the quantity because of the buy one get one free promo then. I still have some unopened jars and because I don't want to cook with the jars we are using as hair and body creams, I had to open a new jar for cooking and we enjoyed this shea butter egg sauce. The meal of 2 eggs served two.

There is no need for an egg sauce recipe because I feel like we all can scramble eggs and when ingredients like tomatoes, onion, pepper and seasoning are added, it becomes our Nigerian egg sauce fit for serving with bread, boiled rice, yam, plantain and even potatoes.

Shea butter is great for the heart, skin, hair , eye sight and even nails.
