• Rice and Stew Very Plenty – RSVP

    Am I the only one that thought RSVP meant Rice and Stew Very Plenty? Come on guys you know you did too hehe. This past week, I went to visit my friend’s mum and she was telling me about Igala recipes and it hit me that a lot of Nigerian dishes are variations of the same thing. Just one ingredient can change the whole name of the soup or dish. Whilst I was there, she offered me lunch and it comprised of rice, chicken stew and beans. Immediately I left the house, it left me craving more so this past weekend, I stuffed myself with that all through the weekend but I added a few more things to it.

    One of our Afrolems Chefs already posted up a recipe for Chicken stew and you can access it here.

    I would be writing the recipe for the Spinach side dish as requested by one of the Afrolems Followers.


    A Small bunch of Spinach (or Shoko vegetable as a substitute) – Spinach is also known as Efo tete

    1/2 bulb of onion

    1 handful of raisins (optional)

    1 cup of chopped shrimps (optional)

    1 tablespoon of butter

    A pinch of salt

    1/2 Maggi cube



    Place the butter in the saucepan on low heat.

    Once the butter has melted, toss in your onions and shrimps if using that.

    Add the seasoning and raisins if you are using that.

    Add your chopped vegetables and stir fry for a minute so you don’t lose the nutrients.

    Serve with any of your meals.
