BN TV: “My 4 Musketeers of Nigerian Vegetables” – Watch a New Episode of Bukie’s Kitchen Muse



Bukie is back with a new episode of Bukie’s Kitchen Muse and it’s all about vegetables today and she’s sharing what she calls her 4 musketeers of Nigerian vegetables, their uses and benefits. These are;

  • Ugwu/Pumpkin leaves
  • Ewuro/Bitter leaves
  • Ewedu/Jute leaves
  • Efirin/Scent leaves or Basil

Here’s what she said;

Hello lovelies, I was having a conversation a while back with a friend about how blessed we are as Nigerians especially when it comes to the sort of greens that we find in close proximity. I think we sometimes take for granted our local food and I thought a vlog highlighting some of the added benefits of our local veges – benefits beyond just taste – would help us appreciate the importance of our local foods especially when it comes to staying healthy.

So today, I step away from cooking recipes to discussing what I call my top Nigerian veges. These 4 are top not just because of the amazing soups or dishes that we make out of them but also because they serve dual purposes – as food and natural medicines/supplements of sorts.

I hope y’all like it. Don’t forget to leave comments below. Also, I’ll like to know what are your 4 Musketeers of Nigerian Vegetables?
