Breakfast And Lunch Post

Today's breakfast inspiration is a combination of different things...




We have moimoi, pap with milk and chocolate, toasted bread and fruits (pineapple and papaya). This is the type of breakfast you eat and just crawl right back into bed... Perfect for weekends!

Today's lunch inspiration is an unconventional one - Ukwa (African Breadfuit).




ukwa porridge and cooked pumpkin (anyu)"

Botanically known as Treculia Africana, this super food is commonly eaten by the Igbos in Southeastern Nigeria. The name 'ukwa' simply refers to breadfuit seeds.

Ukwa has a very rich taste and is packed full of vitamins and minerals like potassium, calcium, beta-carotene, folic acid and vitamin C among others. It has countless health benefits; one of them being its ability to inhibit the absorption of glucose from the food we eat, thereby making it one of the best foods for people with diabetes.

How to cook Ukwa:

Step 1:
Pick out any stones or dirt from the seeds (just like picking beans). If you are using dried ukwa, soak the seeds overnight after picking and drain the next morning.

Step 2:
Rinse the seeds thoroughly with clean water and pour through a colander to get rid of any sand. Repeat this process until the water runs clear.

Step 3:
Put the rinsed ukwa into a pot, add hot water and some salt; cover and cook for 30-45 minutes or till the seeds are tender. (Tip: If you usually add potash as a catalyst when cooking ukwa, try this salt method and you won't use potash again).

Step 4:
Once the seeds are soft, you can either enjoy the ukwa as it is (plain) or turn it into a porridge by adding palm oil, pepper, ogiri, smoked fish and anything else you fancy.
Enjoy!!!

Yummy!

  9. Ukwa is a sweet chomtin! To get the water to drink with the Ukwa while eating, "per boil" the Ukwa 1st ie cook for some mins until it's a bit soft, drain the water (good for bathing babies, makes the skin soft and smooooth!) Then add another water (just enough to cover the ukwa a bit) and cook until done
    Then drain it and then prepare the ukwa as you wish. If the water settles, there's this white substance (from the ukwa) that's sweet as kilode ๐Ÿ˜†. I miss this food ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข
