A quick warming dinner for a winter's night....especially for those not traumatised with sprouts while growing up. My daughter loves it...she says it tastes like broccoli! —Kitchen Butterfly

I love food and I'm interested in making space for little-heard voices, as well as celebrating Nigerian cuisine in its entirety.
