food Sunday, August 21, 2016
It's World Jollof Rice Day today [21st August]. How did we all agree on this date? I don't know. Do we need a day to celebrate the awesomeness that is Jollof? Yes ke! So today I'm going to share 6 jollof recipes I have made that you would absolutely love-each jollof flavour is different from the other but the king of all jollof flavours is party Jollof! Agree?
PARTY JOLLOF RICE
This is the KING of all Jollofs! The first time I shared this recipe aka the "let it burn" recipe was way back in 2013. It was a hit back to back! It is still one of my popular recipes till date! I finally filmed a video for it in 2015 so that you have both print and video. Check it out HERE
PASTA JOLLOF SPAGHETTI
This was the first spaghetti recipe I shared and that was in 2015. It is so easy to make and used to be my go-to style for spaghetti until I started adding minced beef. But trust me, this no fuss recipe is a winner, almost similar ingredients but different flavour. You should try it out. See it HERE.
Initially I was making Jollof but added a bunch of other ingredients and ended up with a spoon-licking jambalaya rice. So can we call it Jambalaya Jollof? T's not 100% Jambalaya and it's not 100% Jollof. LOL. Name this dish! I think it deserves a spot on this list. Don't miss the recipe HERE
MINCED BEFF JOLLOF SPAGHETTI
This recipe is the one you will be jumping upandan for when you try it. It is so rich and definitely not fit-fam friendly but oh...not overtime fit-fam. Sometimes chop better food for your belle. YOLO! I only shared this recipe yesterday so check on it HERE
COCONUT JOLLOF RICE
This was my Christmas recipe. I absolutely love it because I'm crazy about coconuts! One day I asked myself, "what will happen if I add coconut milk to this jollof rice I'm cooking"? I decided to give it a try and it turned out to be spoon-licking good! The sweetness from the coconut milk and onions just bring a different taste to the meal. Don't miss the recipe HERE
JOLLOF YAM PORRIDGE
Why does this count as a jollof recipe? Well the process is "jollofy"-the only difference is that I used yam. It is basically Yam porridge made in tomato sauce, so it is not your every day asaro. LOL. I'm cheating abi? All join! See the recipe HERE
Happy Jollof Rice Day! What are your best tips for Jollof Rice?
