How to Make Fish Pepper Soup

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 27, 2015
Winter and spring flee cooler climes, bringing warmth in their stead and we, here in Nigeria embrace the cool wetness of our rainy season. We celebrate corn, ube and days tucked in bed. We welcome steaming bowls of pepper soup, of fish, chicken and the like. Fish pepper soup, for life on the coast. Fresh […]

Small Chops: Puff-Puff Suya Skewers

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 27, 2015
Been on my mind a while… Small chops and skewers of puff-puff and suya. These were pretty dope. Hence the few words. Vegetables,… Suya-spiced cold-smoked chicken (oven-baked),… …and the finest puff-puff ever. Everything works beautifully – chewy dough, fresh vegetables, smoky chicken. Was I repeating myself? Am I repeating myself? And if you can’t be […]

Grilled Corn Scent leaf Coconut Cream & Feta

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 26, 2015
I love my corn. I’ve been known to run after sellers, craving it with such desperation, one might wonder if the cravings are of a more primal, pregnancy sort. Alas, I like fresh and sweet, juicy too. I like to chew the kernels off and suck the warm, salty liquid from the core. Please judge […]

In Season/ Rainy Season

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 26, 2015
This is the season of waking up to storms – skies thick with grey and streaked with silver. Thunder, lightening, all are part of the rainy season. I need to equip myself well – ditch blue flannel blankets for tartan ones. Find good books to bury my head in, not necessarily buy but dig up […]

The End. Of Mango Season

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 26, 2015
The season’s coming to an end. At least for the variety of mangoes I hold dear. They are going fast out of season. The mangoes are smaller, softer. Fewer trays are out. Stacked high before, they are now plateaus. I’m holding on hard. Its slipping away fast. I’m doing everything I can to keep it […]

Five (5) Savoury Fruit Salads

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 25, 2015
Normally fruit – sweet and fresh are confined to desserts…but I like to go savoury with them sometimes. One of the first explorations was a mango salsa and I haven’t looked back since. While I won’t venture out yet to make a Banana salad…though now I think of it, I will…here are a few I’ve made recently. […]

Sunday Lunch – Scent Leaf Soup

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 24, 2015
One of the things I love the most about scent leaves is the fragrance and aroma when bruised – fresh, clean and citrusy.  I’m from Edo state where Egusi is king. I’ve heard that there’s a soup, black soup is its name but I’ve never had it babe. One weekday I came home from work. […]
