I’ve been itching to cook with authentic Nigerian ingredients and flavours, and so I haven’t rested much since my arrival. I opened up my fridge this morning and found a big bowl of egg whites from yesterday’s baking extravaganza, and a light bulb clicked on in my head – make a frittata for breakfast.
You will Need (for 3 servings):
• Egg whites from 10-12 eggs
• ½ large or 1 small plantain
• 1 medium sweet potato
• One Romano Pepper (tatashe)
• ½ onion
• Vegetable oil, salt and sweet paprika to taste
Place a large frying pan (choose one with a lid) on high heat with about a tablespoon of oil; add the onion, plantain and sweet potato when it heats up. Fry for 3-5 minutes, stirring quite often.
There it is! Quick, easy and yummy – I recommend this recipe for readers on the go early in the morning or on an early lunch break from work. It pairs very well with whole-wheat toast or a savoury breakfast scone, but is a meal unto itself for lighter eaters.
I always welcome questions about food and life in general so if you see me, don’t hesistate to strike up a conversation. If you’re shy (hehe) then use this forum, post a comment or ask a question.
Until next time, remember to cook with class, and serve with style.
Always yours truly,
