Rice with Spinach sauce + plantains

I am sure almost everybody gets tired of the regular rice and stew meal. It is such a staple in the Nigerian diet that sometimes I just want to rebel nd not eat rice and stew for weeks at a time. But alas the Nigerian in me cannot survive without carbs so what do I do? I make alternatives instead. I had rice with a spinach sauce this week and plantains and I can guarantee you that this is not healthy and I ate WAYYYY to much for my own good..*but it tasted so good..:(* I was however able to console myself with the whole spinach are vegetables so therefore it cannot really be that bad…haha!

I have been invited for a live cooking show next week. I am so excited! I am not cooking on it though, only watching! I think it would be a good opportunity t see how the industry works and I can ask questions as well that can hopefully help me in the direction I want all of this to head in the future. Till next time, here is some delicious food.

p.s I wrote a column for Last week. You can check it out HERE. BANGA SOUP

p.s I apologize to everyone I was supposed to send recipes to. I was very busy this month of September as I moved and took on a more challenging aspect at my job. I would get around to them as I have become better at time management and have actually set aside time now to reply inquires each week. E-mail me or Tweet at me as usual!
