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

This was lovely. I think though that the butter could be reduced, and I used more garlic. I used sage as I had no thyme, but the majority flavor is the garlic, butter, and beet. Yum
